From the Executive Director
Dear TETL Members,
I hope you all enjoyed a restful and restorative break this summer. I have been active in TETL since it was founded in 2001, and I am very excited to be taking the helm of this wonderful organization! I recently retired after 21 years as the CTO at Hays CISD, and understand well the many challenges facing our districts as we emerge from the disruptions of the last two years.
We have BIG PLANS for the association in the year ahead! I plan to focus first on three primary areas: 1. Growing the membership of our organization; 2. Increasing the professional learning opportunities available virtually and in person; and 3. Strategizing with the board and membership on how we can better meet the specific needs of smaller school districts.
We are holding three main events during the coming academic year, starting with our Fall Summit on October 7, at San Antonio ISD. The Summit includes a timely keynote panel with the Texas School Safety Center. REGISTER NOW!
Fall Summit—October 7, 2022, at San Antonio ISD
Winter Summit—February 1, 2023, at Hays CISD
Summer Clinic—June 21-22, 2023, at Embassy Suites in San Marcos
In addition, please plan on joining our monthly membership Zoom calls, on the third Thursday of every month, at 1:30 PM, starting September 15.
Otherwise, stay up-to-date with TETL by following us on Twitter and feel free to reach out to me anytime with ideas and opportunities for ways in which we will can build our organization together! I look forward to seeing you soon!
Dianne Borreson, CETL
