A Brief History of the Association of Teacher Educators:
The Association of Teacher Educators was founded on February 26, 1920 (first organizational meeting) as the National Association of Directors of Supervised Student Teaching with 22 charter members and annual dues of $1.00. The first annual meeting was held in Atlantic City on February 28 and March 1, 1921. E.I.F. Williams became Secretary-Treasurer. Membership in 1921 stood at 226.
Annual dues were raised to $2.00 in 1922, and in that year the group changed its name to the National Association of Supervisors of Student Teaching.
In 1924 the first yearbook was published, containing papers presented at the annual meeting. The printing and mailing costs for that yearbook came to $64.25. William C. Bagley was selected for Honorary Membership (later, under ATE, Distinguished Member).
In 1935 John G. Flowers succeeded E.I. F. Williams as Secretary-Treasurer. In 1937 dues were reduced to $1.50 and the association broadened its focus beyond student teaching by selecting this theme for its annual meeting: The Integration of Laboratory Phases of Teacher Training with Professional and Subject Matter Courses.
