TEA ID Instructions

The Texas Education Agency requires all teacher candidates have a state issued ID number (TEA ID number). If you do not already have a TEA ID, follow the instructions below to obtain one and have it ready for your initial interview with Teachworthy.

Do not create a duplicate TEA ID for yourself. You will not be able to sign up for tests if you do.

Go to the TEA ECOS website at https://tea.texas.gov/texas-educators/certification/educator-certification-online-system and create a TEA Login (TEAL) account. When you create your account, you will complete an Educator Profile and obtain a TEA ID number. (This is most efficient on a PC rather than a cell phone)
