The Texas Association of Teacher Educators (TxATE) is the state unit affiliated with the national organization, Association of Teacher Educators (ATE), an organization devoted to the improvement of teacher education.

The members of TxATE have a long, established tradition of active participation in teacher preparation at local, state, and national levels. TxATE provides the link among the three levels. As a state unit of the national organization, TxATE has won ATE's Distinguished Unit Award three (3) times. Strong state units are the building blocks of a strong, dynamic national organization that can serve the children of our nation by preparing qualified, effective teachers for the EC-12 classroom.

TxATE affords many professional opportunities. As a member of TxATE,

  • you will have the opportunity to be involved and have your voice heard on the issues related to teacher preparation in Texas;
  • you will have the opportunity to submit an article for The Texas Forum of Teacher Education, a refereed journal published by TxATE, containing articles and research being done by your colleagues in teacher preparation; and
  • you can participate in the Summer Conference.

In addition to taking an active role in the Fall CSOTTE Conference, TxATE also sponsors the Summer Conference in Austin. This conference offers an interesting, informative program and an opportunity to present and learn.
