Faculty Advisor

Dr. Tara Newman

Dr. Tara Newman

As a first-generation college graduate, some of Dr. Newman’s deepest joys come from supporting individuals in their transition from university student to emerging professional. Dr. Newman has been a faculty member at Texas State University in the Department of Curriculum & Instruction since 2017. She is co-sponsor of the C&I Ambassadors, an advisory board member of Project Maestros, a member of the First-Gen Proud committee, and a Bobcat J.E.D.I. She is a proud military-connected faculty member, with a husband and three sons who are US Marines (Semper Fi, Bobcats!). Dr. Newman, CFLE, is an international leader in teaching and learning and has worked in the Education field for over 20 years in a variety of capacities—including early childhood programs, K-12 classrooms, and higher education. Her experience has focused on building institutional and individual capacity in the area of teaching and learning at each of these levels.
