Young Audiences of Northeast Texas and the Tyler Independent School District are members of the Partners in Education Program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The focus of this partnership is professional learning for teachers in Arts Integration. Our partnership’s commitment to teachers is based on the belief that teachers’ professional learning is an essential component of any effort designed to increase the artistic literacy of young people. Significant research has shown that this investment in teacher knowledge and skills nets the greatest increase in student achievement.
