Jeopardy! Teacher's Tournament

The Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament debuted in Spring 2011. It features 15 teachers competing in the same 2-week format as the Tournament of Champions, Teen Tournament, and College Championship. The first Teachers Tournament debuted on May 2, 2011.

In addition to the aforementioned cash prize, the winner of the tournament automatically earns a spot in the next Tournament of Champions, although one winner (Larry Martin in 2018) died from Pancreatic cancer before the tournament.

So far, two Teachers Tournaments winners have made it to the final round in Tournament of Champions (Colby Burnett in 2013 and Francois Barcomb in 2019); only Burnett won the event.

Burnett was also invited back to the Battle of the Decades in 2014, but lost his semifinal match. He was team captain in the All-Star games in 2019, where he drafted 2017 Tournament of Champions finalist Alan Lin and 2000-B College Champion Pam Mueller as team members. His team was the second runner-up in the event.

Jennifer Giles in 2015 was competed as a member of Team Buzzy Cohen. John Pearson was the alternate in the the All-Star games.

Jason Sterlacci only advanced to the semifinals in 2017.
