Thank you for visiting the Texas Association of Language Supervision online! We hope that our website serves as a resource to you and is able to connect you with other LOTE leaders around the state.
Please feel free to read more about our organization on this site, or meet us at the annual TFLA Fall Conference in October!
The purpose of our Association is to promote and improve the study and teaching of languages, including literatures and cultures, by providing its members with research-based educational and professional support; by encouraging and enhancing leadership roles; and by collaborating with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and professional organizations at area, state, regional, and national levels.
Our organization is driven by exceptional LOTE leaders around the state of Texas. Please consider joining our team!
Each year TALS organizes and hosts a 1.5 Day Conference (TeCCL) specifically for supervisors or leaders of language programs in TEexas.
Additionally, in the Spring, TALS organizes a 1-day Workshop "By TALS for TALS" where members come together to learn and collaborate on common tasks.
