From the Executive Director
Dear TETL Members,
I hope you all are enjoying a restful and restorative break this summer. As your new Executive Director, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and to thank Alice, the board, and you all for your warm welcome and help during this leadership transition.
I have been active in TETL since it was founded in 2001, and 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. I am passionate about building leadership capacity in others and am committed to ensuring TETL is here to help education technology professionals all across the state grow and thrive.
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.
I look forward to getting to know you all and am excited about the ways in which we will continue to build our organization together! Please save the date of October 7, 2022, for the Fall Summit in San Antonio ISD, where I hope to see and/or meet many of you in person. In the mean time, please follow us on Twitter and feel free to reach out to me with ideas and opportunities for ways that TETL can best serve you!
Dianne Borreson, CETL
