Principals and Campus Leaders:

Unite your staff and drive your mission.

You set the tone for your school community and rally your staff around a student-centered mission and vision. You’re constantly balancing operational and strategic thinking with agility. From designing and implementing new, data-informed initiatives to managing day-to-day administrative tasks, your students and staff are always at the forefront of your mind. We want to connect you with resources, tools, strategies, and experts in the field to further the meaningful work you do on your campus.

“I was able to make contact with other session attendees afterward to bounce ideas off of each other. In the current climate, to be able to connect with others in this way, was a gift.”  -Aimee

You Pick Your Sessions

Learning. Lots of it.

With hundreds of sessions to choose from, you’ll expand your learning and grow your expertise. It’s not all about quantity, though. Quality matters! That’s why we provide research-based, data-driven sessions led by experts in the field. Attend sessions. Implement solutions. Get results. And you choose which sessions to attend based on your goals and interests.

Here are just a few of the many sessions specifically designed for leaders and their team:

  • Take PL to FUNky Town: Bringing Joy and Innovation to Professional Learning
  • Transforming Obstacles into Opportunities: 3 Leadership Mindsets to Reinvent Learning
  • Blended Learning with Google for School Leaders: Leading the New Normal
  • Explore Social-Emotional Learning, Mindfulness, and Mindful Movement
  • Developing Strength in Conflict Resolution
  • Quit Email! Learn to Screencast, Create Engaging Videos, and Produce Infographics for Your School

Whether you are attending all four days of the convention or packing as much learning as possible into just a few, your time at the 2022 TCEA Convention & Exposition will be filled with innovative presentations, incredible opportunities for connection, and valuable experiences. Plus, this year we are offering two distinct online session packages focusing on Bridging the Learning Gap and Social-Emotional Learning that you can watch through March 11.
