The Maryland Theatre Education Association (MTEA) works closely with the Maryland State Department of Education Fine Arts Office.
Our commitment is to serve theatre educators and teaching artists in the state of Maryland through professional development and advocacy. Our professional development approach focuses on the theatre educator's skills as an artist. We are a teacher focused organization who believes that serving the theatre teacher as an artist empowers them to be a great teacher.
Currently, our advocacy is focused on providing an accessible network that theatre educators can work with within their regions. In addition, we are working hard to eventually provide grant and scholarship opportunities for theatre educators as well.
