A Letter from the President



Welcome to our Irving ATPE 2014-2015 Year!
Thank all of you for your dedication to Irving ATPE. Because of you, Irving ATPE thrives.  We are fortunate to have you as a member. We hope that you will stay connected with Irving ATPE through our website irvingatpe.blogspot.com and our Facebook page Irving ATPE Facebook . These resources help us stay informed of upcoming events in our local, region and state ATPE.  We hope that this year you take advantage of the Each One Reach One Campaign.
Check out what ATPE has to offer by visiting www.atpe.org There are many benefits to use.  At our state website you can learn more details about legal services, advocacy benefits, and discounts offered.  As educators of Texas children we need to stay well informed on current issues that affect us, our families and those that we teach. TeachTheVote.org is available to keep you informed on how our Texas leaders are supporting education.
It is important that you keep your contact information current for ATPE to stay in contact with you through email, mailings, magazines, and phone calls. Our goal once again is to have direct email to each of our Irivng ATPE members, but we can only do this if we have current information.
This year promises to be another great year in Irving ATPE. Your officers are here for you, so please contact one of us should you need anything.  We welcome your comments, suggestions, and questions. We look forward to renewing old friendships and making new ones.  Please mark your calendar to join us at our meetings.
Our officers have some very exciting plans for this year!  Our first meeting will be virtual on September 12th.  
Thanks!
Andrea Keller
Irving ATPE President
