What I Love About TAEA: I love that TAEA as an incredibly supportive and knowledgeable community of Visual Art educators that support, inspire, and empower educators and students.

Hello! I am Sandra Newton. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Region 7 Representative. I am currently the Director of Visual and Performing Arts for Tyler ISD. I am excited to be home! I recently moved back to Tyler after teaching all levels of Visual Art in the Houston area. However, my Visual Art education career started in Jacksonville, Texas.

TAEA Region 7 is partnering with the University of Texas at Tyler and Stephen F. Austin to offer some exciting opportunities for Art Educators this summer.
