The Teacher Education Association (TEA) is a pre-professional organization of students currently preparing for careers in education. Members of the TEA may choose to join either the Student Oklahoma Education Association (SOEA) or the Student Professional Oklahoma Educators (SPOE). Both organizations offer benefits to teacher education candidates and provide numerous professional development opportunities.
The TEA adviser is Dr. Kip Smilie. Each semester, the TEA has a Meet and Greet to welcome new education majors. Other activities of the TEA include the SGU Christmas Festival, tutoring in local schools, and judging science fairs and speech contests in Oklahoma City area Catholic Schools.
