President Message

Dear Colleagues,

The Association of Teacher Educators in Virginia is a non-profit organization that advocates for professional educator preparation in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

We are dedicated to contributing to the knowledge base and growth of the profession through quality professional development for association members. It is also our goal to prepare and disseminate ideas, innovation, and best practices that foster quality preparation and career-long professional growth for educators.

Our goal is also to be a voice for educator preparation in Virginia. We provide a forum for dialogue and collaboration among several constituencies (state agencies, professional organizations, legislators, PK-12 schools, and 2- and 4- year colleges and universities).

ATE-VA meets formally twice a year in the fall and spring. We welcome the participation of all professionals involved in education.

Trina Spencer
