Austin, Texas: TCEA is pleased to announce Meredith McCune as the association’s new Area 4 Director. As the Area 4 Director, Meredith will unite with 25 other educators to guide TCEA in its mission to advance teaching and learning through technology and its vision of learning without limits.

She was also the chairman of vendors for the Area 4 TCCA (Technology and Curriculum Conference of Aldine) for two years and helped with event implementation for five years.
Meredith earned a bachelor’s degree in recreation, parks, and tourism sciences, and she is currently pursuing her master’s in instructional system design and technology. Meredith is a certified classroom teacher (generalist and English as a second language) for EC through grade 4. She is also a certified Clever, Google, and Nearpod educator.
