We need mentors!
We have just reset our mentee/mentor list for the 2018-19 school year! We are looking for advisors to help assist new teachers with questions they may have.

Please complete this form so I will have all necessary information to match you! If you are a new advisor, sign up so that we can connect you with a mentor.

Texas FCCLA Advisor Google Drive
So many advisors have developed wonderful documents and presentations about Texas FCCLA throughout their years, and we want you to be able to share them!

With many new teachers joining the Texas FCCLA family, having a location where they can browse other advisors' information will give them a good foundation to launch their own chapters. We also know that many of you love to see ideas that other chapters are implementing, and what might also benefit your school!

Please take some time to go on our new GoogleDrive and upload your FCCLA files to be shared with other Texas FCCLA Advisors. We would like you to upload them as "View Only" so that someone cannot accidentally edit the original file.
