Welcome to the Teacher Education and Administration Department. We were approved by the Texas Education Agency to begin functioning as an independent educator preparation program in January 2012.  This is an exciting time for faculty, staff and students as we embark upon the journey of creating a program dedicated to preparing students for successful careers as educators.  We invite both prospective and current students to visit our offices in Dallas 1. Dr. Glenda Moss, Interim Dean and Department Chair, has an office on the 2nd floor.
