Creating Your TEA Account

NOTE: If you want to take a PACT examination for admittance into an educator preparation program, do not create a TEA account at this time. Instead create an ETS testing account directly.

  • Go to the TEA website at www.tea.texas.gov and click on the "TEAL Login" on the top toolbar.
  • If you have already established a new TEA Login (TEAL account), enter your user name and password to access your Educator Profile.
  • If you have not yet established a TEAL account, click “Request New User Account,” and fill in all the information. Once your TEAL account is fully established, you will have access to your Educator Profile.
  • Review the information in your Educator Profile often to ensure it remains current and matches your full name exactly as it appears on your ID.
  • It is important that your TEA Educator Profile contains your mailing address, email address and phone number. All updates and corrections to your TEA Educator Profile must be done on the TEA website; be sure to click the Continue button to save your updates. One hour later, the updates will appear in your ETS testing account. You should check the TEA website on a regular basis to make sure all of your information is current.
  • Your TEA Educator Profile will contain your assigned TEA ID number. A TEA ID number is used for identification throughout the certification and test registration process.
  • Print your TEA Educator Profile so that it will be easily accessible when you register to test.
