Los Fresnos CISD Superintendent of Schools Gonzalo  Salazar has been selected to the elite TED-Ed Innovative program.

Sixteen educators from around the world were chosen for the year-long professional development program for dynamic educators who are dedicated to celebrating the ideas of students and teachers around the world.

“My professional objective has always been to achieve a higher level of proficiency in all aspects of school leadership,” said Salazar, who earned his doctorate degree last year. “So much of what we do hinges on effective communication and being selected to the TED ED Innovative Educators Cohort 4 is an incredible opportunity to grow professionally.”

The program connects leaders within TED’s network of more than 250,000 teachers. The Innovative Educators engage in two months of digital training and 10 months of leadership and innovation projects.

Of the 16 educational leaders chosen, 12 are from the United States. Two are from Canada, one is from Australia and one is from South Africa. Salazar was one of three educators from Texas chosen. The other two were from Fort Worth and Lancaster, a suburb of Dallas.

“This is an opportunity to network with Cohort members that are doing great things throughout the world,” Salazar said. “We can bring back ideas that will allow us to do even greater things for the students we serve.”
