Hundreds of teachers from Texas Baptist schools will meet March 4-5 on the campus of Baylor University in Waco, Texas, for the 43rd annual convention of the Texas Association of Baptist Schools (TABS).

The theme of this year's convention is "Teachers are Learners, Too!" Co-sponsors are Baylor's Center for Christian Education and Howard Payne University.

The TABS convention offers teachers new opportunities to renew their teaching skills and enhance their own knowledge. Numerous conferences are scheduled, all led by university professors . Teachers are also encouraged to visit Baylor's Armstrong Browning Library, which houses the largest collection of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning memorabilia in the world, Cameron Park Zoo, the historic Dr Pepper Museum, Texas Sports Hall of Fame and Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum. Each participant will have a ticket to attend at least two tours during the two-day convention. Trolleys will provide transportation to and from all venues.

The presidents of the two sponsoring universities will speak at the convention. Baylor President Dr. Robert B. Sloan Jr. will open the convention with a keynote address at 9 a.m. on March 4, in Waco Hall on the Baylor campus. Howard Payne President Dr. Rick Gregory will end the convention with his address at 11 a.m. March 5, also in Waco Hall.
