    Every year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) submits a list of teacher shortage areas by subject matter and a list of designated low-income schools to the U.S. Department of Education.  Teachers with certain types of student loans may qualify for partial loan forgiveness, deferment, or cancellation benefits.  Contact a loan servicer for information.
