Building a Legacy through Connecting, Collaborating, and Coaching Networks
Connecting, collaborating, and coaching are all important components in TCWSE’s efforts to building a strong support system for women administrators. TCWSE strives both to ensure continued success for women who are pursuing careers in school administration today and to encourage women to enter the executive ranks, providing a strong leadership presence for tomorrow. TCWSE was founded in 1984 to give Texas’ growing number of women school executives a strong network of support and a forum in which to share ideas. For more than 30 years, the council has fostered women’s careers by recognizing excellence and inspiring achievement. Join the TCWSE network today!
TCWSE offers its members a network of professional contacts as well as opportunities to interact with peers across the state. Members find support through regional and statewide groups, meeting other successful women administrators eager to share their experiences and expertise.
TCWSE members also may participate in regional councils. Through social and informational programs hosted by these councils, members have the opportunity to meet other members in their areas, while addressing topics unique to regional school administrators in general and women administrators in particular.
TCWSE's 2015 Conference will take place January 24-25 at the Austin Hilton Hotel, immediately prior to TASA's Midwinter Conference. The conference is an annual opportunity for all TCWSE members to get together to discuss the issues and challenges facing women administrators, make new connections, and meet old friends.
