The last fifteen of those years she served as a superintendent in both small and large districts, spanning both ends of the economic scale; service which earned her a nomination by her peers as Indiana Superintendent of the Year.

Her motto is “Children First,” and she has been called one of “those special superintendents who lead through vision, standards of excellence, and integrity.”
Dr. Eineman is proud to continue her life’s work with the Crown Point Community School Corporation and make the community of Crown Point her permanent home. She began her tenure in April of 2006: The first ninety days brought a plethora of activities that earned Dr. Eineman instant exposure and respect from the community of Crown Point. Most notably, on behalf of Dr. Suellen Reed, State of Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, State Representative Robert Kuzman bestowed the highest state education honor on June 9, 2006, at Crown Point High School Auditorium to Dr. Eineman – the coveted State of Indiana Bellringer Award. The Bellringer Award is Indiana's recognition for her cumulative accomplishments in education.
Recently, the Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce for Northwest Indiana named Dr. Teresa A. Eineman to the Top Ten Athena Award Winners for three consecutive years: 2010, 2011, and 2012.
