Welcome to the Association of Teacher Educators!

The ATE vision is to promote advocacy, equity, leadership, and professionalism for teacher educators in all settings and support quality education for all learners at all levels.

It is an exciting time to be a member of ATE. As we move into the next 100 years of service to our noble profession, we welcome a new Executive Director. As an experienced academic leader, Dr. Alisa Chapman brings her energy and passion for educator preparation to our association. We welcome her ideas to strengthen our association and to invest in partnerships and programs to support our vision.

As we build upon the great work we have achieved, I remain excited about the possibilities of our continuing work on issues of advocacy and equity in educator preparation. Our partnerships across the globe – ATE-Europe, Australia ATE, World Federation of ATE, Canada ATE – as well as those here at home through the National Coalition of Educators, allow us to partner with other entities that share our vision of equity and advocacy in education and extend our voice to a wider audience. I greatly anticipate the work to Our united voices building a crescendo: Advocating for inclusiveness, equity, and excellence in educator preparation. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with your comments, questions, and concerns. We strive to be your educator preparation association of choice!!
