The Houston Area Teacher Center (HATC) is a consortium of 35 Houston-area school systems with the University of Houston and its College of Education. HATC was founded in 1970 and began operation in 1971 with six school systems. It is the oldest and largest teacher center in the nation. HATC's member school districts represent more elementary and secondary students than many of the states.
In 2011 HATC celebrates 40 years of service to school systems and to the teaching profession. The Center is a forum for the College and area school systems to work through issues of common concern such as teacher supply and demand, job placement, and protocols for the placement of student teachers and for working with professional development schools.
Thanks to all who helped make the Spring 2013 teacher fair a success! Once again, it is time to start preparing for our next event. The Fall 2013 teacher fair is scheduled for November 1, 2013.
