TCEA 2022 Thought Leaders

TCEA 2022 is bringing you diverse perspectives shared by fantastic educators, and we are so excited. We are blown away year after year by so many outstanding educators at the TCEA Convention & Exposition. They not only speak from experience, but are committed to best practices in teaching and learning. They are also deeply invested in you, your success, and your students’ learning journeys. These thought leaders are one big reason why TCEA 2022 won’t disappoint. Along with your TCEA community, join us in hearing our TCEA 2022’s thought leaders, who will be coming from near and far.

Dr. Denaé Lawson

Denaé is a born and raised Dallasite currently serving as a K-2 Literacy Interventionist in Richardson ISD. She believes that every student should be engaged in learning, feel that their voices are being heard, be intrinsically motivated, take ownership over their learning, and feel that they belong in her classroom. Catch one of Denaé’s sessions, but in the meantime, check out her Student Choice Checklist that you can immediately implement in your classroom.
