Raising the bar for theatre educator professional development.

Welcome to Theatre Educator Pro


Theatre Educator Pro is the Educational Theatre Association’s learning and education center- a suite of online resources to support our members' professional learning and advance the profession of teaching theatre. EdTA is the co-author of the National Core Theatre Standards.  In addition, EdTA is the author of the Theatre Opportunity-to-Learn Standards, and the High School Theatre Teacher Evaluation Workbook. Theatre Educator Pro is intended to complement and support these resources and help to affirm the professionalism of theatre educators and to improve the success and literacy of their students.
