TECTA has a fresh new look and logo, but you will find familiar faces and the same great experience we have offered for over 25 years. We have expanded our statewide support, tools, and technology with additional funding from the Tennessee Department of Human Services. The new logo retains the heart of our old logo—the lattice—and updates it to align with what TECTA represents today. Our main priority is to provide high quality professional development opportunities and experiences that enable you to personalize your professional journey. Look around our new site to explore and find the right opportunities for you.
