Thirty years ago, the Dallas Institute of Humanities had the idea for a summer seminar devoted to professional teaching development. The Cowan Center, named for Dr. Louise Cowan, was born, and what is now called the Sue Rose Summer Institute for Teachers still survives as a critical tool for revitalizing our city's educators. Trust us, we know how important teachers are. Despite the pains of waking up early and doing constant homework, our time spent in school was always made worthwhile, thanks to the hard work and dedication of a few special teachers. Come celebrate a night of education and the influential figures who make learning a top priority in our city. This year's keynote speaker will be 96-year-old Dr. Louise Cowan herself. In addition, the Dallas Institute will proclaim 2013 "the year of the teacher," since the event also serves as the kick off for many more educational programs and seminars. Stick around for a wine and cheese reception afterward.
