Online Help for Teachers and Parents
A&M System Celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week with New Website
(COLLEGE STATION, Texas) — As teachers move their classrooms online and parents struggle with home school, The Texas A&M University System has launched a new website with helpful resources for both.
“This global health crisis has created many challenges we have not faced before,” said John Sharp, Chancellor of The Texas A&M University System. “We created this site, We Teach Texas, to share helpful resources and share our commitment to producing the highest quality educators who are prepared to deliver world-class education for the children of Texas.”
The website includes the work of experts from the 11 universities across The Texas A&M System, which have prepared highly qualified teachers for more than 100 years.
Education is more critical than ever for both individual success and for the success of our nation. The education colleges across The Texas A&M University System lead the way in accomplishing this critical outcome.
“We are committed to continually improving the effectiveness of our educator preparation programs using the latest research and data, producing the best teachers to educate the children of Texas,” said Shonda Gibson, associate vice chancellor for academic affairs for the A&M System. “This resource highlights our approach to educating and preparing Texas teachers. We are proud to say, We Teach Texas.”
Educators — or those who may seek to become Texas teachers — can also find information on all 11 of the A&M System’s colleges of education on the We Teach Texas website.
