AAEE This Is Us Webinar Series

Learn more about your school system colleagues and their organizations by joining us for the This Is Us webinar series. This series will highlight one AAEE member school system each month, including a live 30 minute webinar open to all. Attendees will learn about the district, including employment opportunities, and be able to interact with a district representative during a Q&A segment. 

Previous webinar recordings will be available on our website for those who are unable to attend. This is a unique opportunity for our members to showcase what makes their school system special. In turn, universities and colleges will be able to provide their future educators with first hand knowledge about districts across the United States, including the representative to contact should they wish to learn more.

Interested in featuring your school district?
Contact AAEE Professional Development Director, Daphne Donaldson at

About IDEA Public Schools

DEA Public Schools believes that each and every child can go to college. Since 2001, IDEA Public Schools has grown from a small school with 150 students to the fastest-growing network of tuition-free, Pre-K-12 public charter schools in the United States.

IDEA was recently named America’s Best Charter School Network and boasts national rankings on The Washington Post and U.S. News & World Report’s top high schools lists. IDEA serves more than 35,000 college-bound students in 61 schools across three Texas regions and is on-track to maintain its legacy of sending 100% of its graduates to college. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that thrives on the engagement of our alumni and community members as well as the financial support of individual donors, foundations, and friends of IDEA.


IDEA Public Schools prepares students from under-served communities for success in college and citizenship.


To ensure students reach their potential, IDEA Public Schools will become the region’s largest creator of college graduates.

Teacher Career Pathway

Excellent teachers are the key to realizing our promise to students. The Teacher Career Pathway was created to make IDEA a place where teachers feel valued for their invaluable role in our movement to send all students to and through college. As teachers are promoted up the pathway, they receive increased professional development, influence, recognition, and compensation.
