Curriculum and Instruction Leader and Coaches

You’re always helping educators stay focused, inspired, and effective. It’s why you stay up-to-date with the latest professional development strategies for staff, as well as the best coaching methods to encourage effective teaching in changing times. It’s why we created the TCEA Convention & Exposition. We wanted you to have an abundance of resources and ideas at your fingertips so you can support and motivate your staff.  

    “The many opportunities for teachers to use innovative methods of teaching in the classroom was simply amazing.”

    What does your ticket to the TCEA Convention & Exposition get you?

    Get back time. Your time is invaluable. Why not knock out all of your required CPE hours at once? With over 500 events and experiences, there are over 40 live-event credit hours and over 350 self-paced credits available on-demand for 30 days after the live event! 

    Bring back strategies that actually work. Discover techniques that you can incorporate quickly and easily.

    Learn your way. We know how busy you are. It’s why we created interactive and on-demand sessions that allow you to learn at your own pace. You can embrace a full learning experience (and in your PJs — we won’t judge) through March 5.

    Amplify your value. Discover how to add to your skill set in order to collaborate on any project.

    Create engaging education. Learn about the latest tools and tech to help educators easily create compelling content. 

    Make meaningful connections. It’s not a TCEA convention without building unique and lasting relationships. Expand your PLN with morning kickoffs, roundtable discussions, and experiences that will supercharge you.  

    Improve student outcomes. Explore strategies and techniques that will really work in a classroom. Take the guesswork out of the equation by learning from your peers what has been successful and what hasn’t.
