The Texas Environmental Education Advisory Committee (TEEAC) is a committee of the Texas Education Agency that helps assure that formal and informal providers of professional development in environmental education align their materials and workshops to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
Upon request, the committee may advise the commissioner on environmental education issues.
The TEEAC Annual Providers' meeting brings together representatives from zoos, museums, and nature centers to learn about state curriculum issues and initiatives.
The Annual TEEAC Providers’ Meeting will take place on Friday, January 7, 2011, in Austin. Registration information will be sent out this fall to TEEAC Providers. You can request to be added to the invitation list via an email to Irene.Pickhardt@tea.state.tx.us.
TEEAC Providers: TEEAC coordinates with other state, regional, and local agencies that are charged with the development of environmental education materials. TEEAC cooperates with a network of providers of environmental education professional development, including universities, state agencies, museums and nature centers. This network of TEEAC Providers helps assure that teacher professional development offered by formal and non-formal providers is educationally sound and consistent with the TEKS.
How to Become a TEEAC Provider: To become a TEEAC Provider, an institution must provide professional development to educators and/or provide educational opportunities for Texas students. Providers complete a Program Description Form for each workshop title they offer educators. Please request the Program Description Form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
