Fulshear High School's Tracey Jensen has been recognized as the 2020 High School Canvas Educator of the Year. 

The 2020 Canvas Educator of the Year Awards recognize outstanding educators in the United States working to embrace remote learning, prepare students for the workforce and support student success and achievement in an evolving education landscape. 

Jensen was nominated by one of her students last year, who stated that Jensen was “ of the few teachers who not only teaches us the necessary things to pass the class but lifelong lessons as well.” 

During the transition to remote learning, Jensen has gone above and beyond providing assistance to her students in preparation for their AP exams. The result is that last year, 100% of her AP Calculus BC students passed the AP exam—even though they were remote for classes during the pandemic. She's offered her own time and money to get functioning calculators for the exams.

With a commitment to broadening students’ horizons, Jensen combines real-life scenarios with fundamental curricula to deepen understanding and promote student mentorship that will last well after graduation.
