What I Love About TAEA: I love that TAEA is a supportive, passionate, intelligent, professional, insightful, hard-working, knowledgeable, collaborative, energetic, and innovative network of incredible people that make us all better educators, administrators, and artists. Thank you TAEA! I am so thankful to be a part of this amazing professional organization.

Welcome to the TAEA Supervision and Administration Division Cohort. I am very excited to be the chair of our division for the next two years. Sandra Newton, my co-chair, and I are working on several projects for our group including a summer 2020 mini-conference/retreat. We hope this retreat will give all of us, no matter which fine arts strand we hail from, an opportunity to connect, discuss and share ideas, answer questions, collaborate, and create through hands on learning activities. Details and registration will be available on April 1, 2020.

We are continuing the excellent District of Distinction Award Program that began in 2018-2019. This program offers Texas school districts, no matter the size, the opportunity to receive statewide recognition for excellence in visual art education. More information about this program can be found here.

If you have questions, concerns or want to be added to our division mailing list please contact me at .

Sandy and I look forward to getting to know many more of you over the next two years.

Texas Art Education Outreach

TAEO promotes and offers successful quality art education support to Texas art educators through mentoring and professional development presentations.

  • Do you have teachers who need assistance?
  • Can a mentor help guide a new teacher?
  • Could you use a quality workshop/in-service presentation?

TAEO can help with presenters and mentors.

Let's help each other to prepare, support, and encourage Texas art educators.
