Our Story

In 2011, GenTX SA organized a task force of curricula specialists and educators and challenged them to develop an instructional thread (kindergarten through high school) that helps students prepare for college and careers. GenTX SA identified an opportunity to provide resources for teachers during the transition to the CCRS and STAAR exam and felt the importance of providing teachers with these meaningful tools.

Throughout the 2011-2012 school year, five local school districts piloted this innovative lesson writing and professional development project and an additional six districts have joined the program for the 2012-2013 school year. In 2014, after all lessons have been written, tested, and refined, GenTX SA will have sponsored the development of more than 700 lesson plans for teachers’ use.

These lessons, along with accompanying toolkits and videos, are available for use free of charge to all teachers throughout Bexar County and across Texas on SA-Ready.org, ensuring high quality resources are available for teachers and students.

GenTX is creating a new generation of teachers who will change classrooms. Join our movement.
