In Your Profession

Our Bridges Institute for Professional Development provides high-quality programming to support educator development in and out of the classroom.

At the Capitol

If we want to keep dedicated teachers and staff in our public schools, it’s time for the Texas Legislature to fully fund our schools and fully respect our school staff.
