May/June Texas School Business
The May/June issue of Texas School Business, published by TASA, looks at one of the hottest topics of the day — AI in the classroom. The issue also profiles TABSE President Christopher Pichon, TACS President Kayla Morrison, and TAPSA President Al Rodriguez. ESC Region 12 provides the “Regional View” this issue, while long-time art teacher Jami Bevans writes about the importance of art education in “The Arts.” And, of course, the issue also includes your favorite columns by Jim Walsh and Riney Jordan, plenty of Who’s News, and more.
Read/Share the Spring Issue
The spring issue of TASA’s INSIGHT introduces TASA’s executive coaching pilot program and bids a fond farewell in words and pictures to TASA’s longest-serving staff members, Ann Halstead (37 years) and Marita Rogers (35 years), who retired at the end of March. The issue also features the rest of our staff and their roles with TASA, including our part-time Executive Superintendents. We look back at the 2023 Midwinter Conference and a young woman who saved the day and stole the show, Varsha Kumar. We have another batch of Inspiring Leaders, a Leadership Perspective by Texas Superintendent of the Year Bobby Ott and Victoria ISD Superintendent Quintin Shepherd, a Tech Take on AI by TETL’s Dianne Borreson, and a Higher Education column on the TIA by Waco ISD’s Amy Hosick and Texas Tech’s Dusty Palmer. This issue is chock full!
