Past Presidents

The individuals listed below have been graciously willing to serve our organization in the capacity of President since the organization began in 1953. Without their willingness to lead, our organization may not have stood the test of time. Each of these individuals received the "President's Gavel" at the annual banquet when they take office, and receive the "President's Citation Plaque" upon retiring from the position. To those of you looking at this part of our history, will your name one day be here?

ITEEA in Atlanta, Georgia in 2018

The ITEEA's 80th Annual Conference will be held In Atlanta, Georgia! This year's theme will be "Building Bridges Within The STEM Community and Beyond." Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is very much a “buzzword” on today’s educational landscape. Every teacher, school, district, and state has its own version of what STEM means as well as how to help students engage in experiences that will prepare them for the 21st Century. Technology and Engineering is the foundation for making these experiences meaningful through integrative STEM education. Building bridges helps everyone to understand the important role technology and engineering contributes to STEM education.  

This conference is an opportunity to recognize and honor the accomplishments of our colleagues and best-practice programs. Additionally, it provides professional development and networking opportunities, as well as opportunity to renew old friendships and create new friendships. For more information, click here.
