2021-2022 Board of Directors

Numerous professional educators steer the association, prioritizing the needs of our members and keeping us in step with the realities educators face today.  LFTX's leaders are active advocates for professional learning who contribute their time and expertise to ensure members have the support they need to be successful.

The Board of Directors is Learning Forward Texas’ decision-making body and consists of three state-wide officers: president, vice president, and finance officer.  The officers and executive committee work closely with LFTX’s Executive Director and staff to leverage the power of professional learning to affect positive and lasting change in K-12 education.
