Our Mission

TAFE encourages students to learn about careers in education and assists them in exploring the teaching profession while promoting character, service and leadership skills necessary for becoming effective educators.

Our Motto

“The Hope for Tomorrow”

History of TAFE

TAFE was found in 1984 so that students all over Texas would have the opportunity:

  • To learn about the teaching profession, its opportunities, responsibilities, and its important role in our democracy.
  • To explore their interests and abilities in relation to the various fields of teaching.
  • To cultivate the qualities of character, service and leadership which are essential in good teachers.
  • To learn how and where teachers receive their training, the cost, scholarships available, number of years required, certification requirements, and standards.
  • To study the lives and influence of great teachers.
