We will meet either by telephone or face-to-face for about 35 and 50 minutes as your schedule allows. The first session is generally between 60 and 90 minutes as we get to know each other and begin to focus on your goals and direction. If between sessions you cannot wait to share something or need advice or have a challenge, please feel free to call or email. Of course there is no charge for this additional time.
We offer weekly and one day sessions based on your group or teams schedule. Our interactive, hands on sessions address values and strengths identification, goal-setting, and action planning. We will provide coaching sessions that best meet your group or team’s needs.
Created in 1949, the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) is a voluntary, nonprofit, statewide educational association that serves and represents local Texas school districts and promotes educational excellence for Texas schoolchildren through advocacy, visionary leadership, and high quality services to school districts. TASB is not a state agency and should not be confused with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) or the State Board of Education (SBOE), the group with oversight of curriculum for the state of Texas.
TASB is the largest association of its kind in the nation. We employ a diverse mix of professional, technical, risk management, and administrative staff.
The dynamic individuals who belong to the TASB family are committed to providing school districts with quality products and services. Through this effort, TASB continues to promote educational excellence for Texas schoolchildren. After all … education is everybody’s business!

Resources for survivors and their families
The Chinese proverb still holds true… Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
Survivors of domestic and family violence are ordinary people, coming from regular jobs and families, capable of caring for themselves given the RIGHT tools. Giving a survivor a chance to regain control of their own life is the single most important gift anyone can give to this cause and to this movement.
