Kameron Koeffler, a fifth-grade teacher at The University of Texas Elementary School and an alum of the special education program at UT Austin, was honored as the 2022 Outstanding Educator of the Year by the Council for Exceptional Children’s Division for Learning Disabilities (DLD). He was nominated for the award by Dr. Toste.
"As a trained special educator, I have seen Kameron translate his knowledge of evidence-based practices and disability into his classroom as a general education teacher. For his commitment to students with or at-risk for LD, as well as his passionate pursuit of diversity, equity and justice in education, I can think of no teacher more deserving of DLD's Outstanding Educator of the Year Award than Kameron Koeffler. He is truly the teacher that every parent dreams their child could have,” Toste remarked.
