ATPE members wear their creativity and pride on their sleeves—and on their T-shirts!

It’s that time once again: We’ve reached the end of yet another school year. I hope that yours has been rewarding and that you’ve accomplished the goals you set for yourself and your students at the start of the year. The end of a school year brings with it a unique perspective. It’s a chance to look at both the past and the future. Looking back, I’m so proud of all that you, as ATPE leaders, have accomplished. What could have been a dangerous legislative session for public education ended on a positive note, thanks to your advocacy efforts and your willingness to spread the word about Teach the Vote. Looking forward, I can’t wait to spend time with you at the 2013 ATPE Summit in July—learning, networking and making important decisions about ATPE’s future. It’s always awe-inspiring to think about being a part of this family of 100,000-plus members. Our annual volunteer list is featured on pages 11–30 of this magazine. The 5,000-plus volunteer leaders across Texas who are featured in “Leadership defined” are our family’s leaders, and it makes me proud to see your names in print. You consistently work hard to make sure that ATPE remains the preeminent educators’ association in Texas. I can’t thank you all enough! I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be your state president, and I am excited to continue working with you in the future for the benefit of ATPE—and Texas public education. Take time this summer to relax and recharge, and I wish you all the best for 2013-14.

AROUND TEXAS stories of local unit and region success Local Unit Management

Building a network

S

ome ATPE regions are finding out that Facebook is not just a fun network for socializing—it also provides another avenue for communicating region business. The social network designed to connect people near and far can effectively create a virtual region that connects members across many districts. Members from Region 10 ATPE, one of ATPE’s largest regions, are able to benefit from an active Facebook page that features a variety of posts, including information about ATPE state and local events and even inspiring quotes aimed to help educators survive STAAR testing. Region 12 ATPE turned to its Facebook page during a time of crisis. After the April 17 West fertilizer plant explosion, Region 12 leaders immediately organized a donation drive and used Facebook to post regular updates on their progress and thank donors by name. It was an excellent way to simultaneously show appreciation and generate additional donations. What makes any good Facebook page great is a strong twoway communication stream that creates a community feel. For example, fans of the Region 10 and Region 12 Facebook pages feel welcome to share thoughts, interesting links and photos with their fellow region members on the Facebook pages. When mem-

bers post questions to the pages, page administrators quickly provide answers, and all members are able to benefit from seeing an exchange that would have otherwise happened privately. This online community also has the potential to break down barriers between regions and new members who enjoy ATPE but don’t know how to get involved. Region 10 officers have noticed that many newer ATPE members have become more involved in face-to-face region events after joining the Facebook page. Communications via Facebook have worked especially well with younger members, who are more likely to feel comfortable online. Facebook pages can also serve as an outreach tool to nonmembers. Regions and local units can include photos and posts on their pages showcasing ATPE events and member accomplishments so all can see in real-time how active and successful ATPE truly is.

Recruitment

Looking for a few good retired leaders

▸ If you are a retired ATPE leader—even if you just retired at the end of the 2012-13 school year—and you enjoy talking about ATPE, you can earn up to $500 in gift cards! All retired ATPE volunteers are invited to share their enthusiasm for ATPE at district orientations this August. If you host an ATPE table at one of our approved districts in which there is no local unit, ATPE will give you a $100 gift card; you can earn up to five. We’ll provide you with a list of potential districts and materials such as promo items, a table banner and applications. You’ll be responsible for contacting districts to arrange your attendance at their orientation events.

Service to School and Community

Leadership involvement

Spring forward T

was a success!

hanks to the generous donations of individuals, ATPE local units and regions, and other organizations, the ATPE Foundation was able to raise $3,795 in May during its Spring Forward donation drive. These funds will be used to support the foundation’s literacy initiatives, technology programs, and educator recruitment and retention efforts. The ATPE Foundation is registered in Texas as a nonprofit corporation and is a public charity exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Showing support for West Three out of the four West ISD schools were severely damaged in April 2013 by a tragic fertilizer plant explosion, and many educators lost most, if not all, of their classroom supplies. ATPE members from across the state immediately came together to show their support for their family in West. Here’s a sampling of ATPE’s efforts:

▸ The ATPE Foundation raised more than $14,000 through its West ISD Relief Fund.

▸ Region 6 ATPE voted to give $2,750 to help the educators who lost their classrooms in the disaster replenish school supplies.

▸ On behalf of their local unit, Plano ATPE Treasurer Julie Riggs, Secretary Caryn Bartle and campus rep Paul Bartle handdelivered more than 75 gift cards and six boxes of school supplies to West ISD.

▸ Region 9 ATPE Director Kristi Daws and Region 12 ATPE President Sandra O’Connor collected basic supplies from their regions for West Intermediate School, which experienced the greatest damage.

▸ West ATPE’s region, Region 12 ATPE, organized a donation drive and used its Facebook page to spotlight those who made contributions. The region raised a total of $10,887.

Region 1 ATPE remembers a dedicated educator

L

ongtime Region 1 and Laredo ATPE leader Esther Buckley passed away Feb. 11, 2013. With her passing, ATPE has lost a shining example of an educator who devoted her life to her students and her colleagues. Throughout her career, Esther taught at Laredo ISD’s Christen Middle School, Nixon Annex; Cigarroa High School; and Martin High School. Her last position was at the Dr. Dennis D. Cantu Health Science Center at Martin High School. In addition, Esther was a dedicated advocate for public education and served on many education-related commissions and boards, including the Governor’s Commission on Women and the Texas Hispanic Advisory Practices and Ethics Commission. In 1983, President Ronald Reagan appointed her to the United States Commission on Civil Rights. She served as a commissioner for nine years. Region 1 ATPE held a memorial for Esther during its region convention in March. Leaders presented a list of Esther’s accomplishments and a PowerPoint photo presentation. “We then asked that all of the funds raised for ATPE’s Political Action Committee that night be donated in her memory,” Region 1 ATPE President Susie Andrews says. “Everyone received credit for their own donation, but since Esther was so politically involved, we decided to make the total amount raised that night a donation in her memory.” Esther’s dedication echoed all the way to Austin. Sen. Judith Zaffirini (D–Laredo) released a statement Feb. 12 regarding Esther’s death, which you can read at www.zaffirini.senate. state.tx.us/pr13/p021213a.htm. She also asked the Senate to adjourn for the day in Esther’s memory; the motion passed unanimously.

Whose line is it

anyway? It’s yours!

ATPE leaders receive tips and tools for effective recruitment and retention

refresher for our veteran leaders.” The presentations included recruiting techniques, tips for preparing for new-teacher orientations (NTOs), role-playing the most commonly encountered recruitment situations, what’s new for 2013 and how the ATPE state office can assist members and their local units. In addition, attendees were shown humorous training videos produced by ATPE Member Services. You can view these videos on the official ATPE YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/OfficialATPE.

The 2013-14 Region 14 ATPE officers received “Back to Basics” training during their April 27 spring meeting at the Towne Crier Steakhouse in Abilene.

uring spring 2013 region meetings, ATPE leaders participated in a state office-presented “Back to Basics” training covering tried-and-tested recruitment and retention techniques. The state office’s goal for these training presentations was to take the show on the road. “We wanted to reach campus reps and members who aren’t always able to make it to the summit,” ATPE Member Services Supervisor Lacey Denton says. “It was great information for new volunteers, as well as a


7

What did you think? We contacted the 2012-13 ATPE state officers and region directors and presidents to ask them what they thought of the presentations and if they’d received any feedback from their members.

“I think that the presentation was a wonderful opportunity for leaders to share an idea or story. This is helpful for those who are a little uneasy about making that first presentation. The energy and enthusiasm was contagious in the room, and it left everyone anxious to go out and get some more members!” —Region 10 ATPE Director Jackie Davis

“It would be great to pull [what we learned] up right at the beginning of school to remind everyone just how simple it can be to be a productive volunteer.” —Region 8 ATPE Director Rita Long

“I think the key was ‘be prepared, and know your facts,’ because people believe you when you believe what you are saying.” —Region 8 President Sandra Patterson

“New attendees commented that they enjoyed all the information given, and we all discussed how to use it in recruiting.” —Region 17 ATPE President Ranelle Baldwin

“I am hopeful that some of us heard a fresh new way to approach our colleagues about becoming members.”

“At the Region 5 Convention, I sat next to a new teacher who was a member of both ATPE and AFT. She said she had joined both because she was not sure which one she wanted to be a part of. By the end of the training and conversations with other members at the table, she was 100 percent sold on ATPE and was excited about going out and telling others. She will only be a member of one organization next year!”

—Region 6 ATPE Director Judi Thomas

—ATPE State Vice President Ginger Franks

The ATPE Volunteer Study Guide

A

long with the training, Back to Basics attendees received the ATPE Volunteer Study Guide, a two-sided quick-reference guide full of information that will be especially useful come NTO season. A 2013-14 version of the Study Guide will be mailed to local units in membership materials boxes in late June, and the information is also available in the ATPE Mobile App, which you can download from the App Store or Google Play. (Search for ATPE.)

The guide features:

▸ Association talking points. ▸ Examples of good “opening lines.” ▸ Details about ATPE’s protection, advocacy and resource programs.

▸ A list of the services and discounts

that come with ATPE membership.

▸ Answers to frequently asked questions.

Picture-perfect ATPE’s standing committees meet each fall and spring to address important association business. The members of the nine committees discuss items of business that will later be considered by the ATPE House of Delegates; coordinate the election of state officers; review the annual membership campaign and recruitment of minority and diverse populations; discuss strategies for developing future association leaders; and recommend ways to improve the association’s services and its communications, including media relations, atpe.org and publications such as this magazine. ATPE thanks the nearly 80 members who devoted their time to committee service in 2012-13. Please consider volunteering to serve on a 2013-14 standing committee or one of the special committees that selects award recipients.

The 2012-13 ATPE award finalists have risen to the top Congratulations to the 2012-13 finalists for ATPE Local Unit of the Year, Campus Representative of the Year and the Sam Houston Award for Political Involvement. The recipients of these awards will be announced during the 2013 ATPE Summit, July 17–19 at the Austin Convention Center. Awards honoring professional excellence and membership growth will also be presented during the event.

Local Unit of the Year

501–1,000 members Birdville

1–500 members Burkburnett

In the fall, Birdville ATPE sponsored pizza parties on every Birdville ISD campus as a show of appreciation and a means of possibly recruiting new members.

At the start of the school year, the local unit held an iPad contest to drive membership recruitment. Through the efforts of 11 dedicated recruiters, 27 new members joined—some of whom even canceled their competitor memberships to do so!

Kermit Kermit ATPE officers hold a luncheon at the start of each new school year to set local unit goals. “This luncheon is always a big success, as members catch up on the summer events and renew in each other the spirit of enthusiasm that is needed to inspire our members through the school year,” President Gayla Brown says.

McAllen Members of the local unit attended a city zoning meeting in August 2012 to speak for the need for bike lanes throughout the city. Many of the ideas presented by McAllen ATPE members, which were given with the safety of the community in mind, were incorporated into the final plan.

Boerne Each April, Boerne ATPE holds a meeting to recognize the accomplishments of its members. “It is wonderful to see how humble our teachers and staff are, and [it’s] fun getting them to open up and share,” President Teri Nail says.

Houston The officers of Houston ATPE feel a responsibility to make ATPE a thriving organization in Houston and are currently rebuilding after years of dormancy. President Cynthia Villalovos thinks “we are like a beaver building strong campus reps and schools, one building at a time.”

1,001-plus members Carrollton-Farmers Branch The local unit works with the district administration to promote public education and political involvement. President

Charlton Holmes believes that their local unit’s membership continues to grow because of the association’s position as a professional organization rather than a union.

Denton Denton ATPE officers believe in the power of good communication. Monthly updates that include information on local unit finances, activities and opportunities, and the achievements of individual members are disseminated through campus reps; the local unit also maintains a website and a Facebook page.

Mesquite Mesquite ATPE President Kristi Petty sent a letter to each new Mesquite ISD employee at the start of the 2012-13 school year to welcome them to the district and introduce them to ATPE.

Texas Woman’s University Members of the TWU local unit continued the tradition of holding a weekly community reading program at the Denton Barnes and Noble. This year, they even had a celebrity guest: Denton Mayor Mark Burroughs shared two books about elections with the student participants.

Texas A&M University– Corpus Christi In December 2012, TAMUCC ATPE members cooked a meal for the residents of their local Ronald McDonald House.

Campus Rep of the Year 1–500 members Jerry Jarrell, North Lamar Hilda Martinez, La Joya Katherine Whitbeck, Nacogdoches

501–1,000 members

University Houston Baptist University

Bobby Barnes, Tyler Sierra Villalovos, Houston

The local unit worked to increase attendance at local unit meetings by sending members email and text notifications, involving HBU faculty members in spreading meeting details, and hosting speakers on a variety of member-chosen topics.

Leadership d e f i n e d

Forget the dictionary definition of leadership—ATPE leadership is defined by the dedication of more than 5,000 volunteers across the state who lead our local units and regions. Their names are listed on the following pages. Without the enthusiasm of these individuals, the association wouldn’t be what it is today—the largest educators’ association in the state! Each local unit’s membership total is listed in parentheses after its name. Volunteer leaders are listed in alphabetical order by first name.

The first step to ATPE leadership? Finding a buddy. “The buddy system is the best way to first get involved. Walk with a leader in their shoes, go to the officer meetings and be present as much as possible to see if volunteering is something you would enjoy.” —Cassandra Carter, Northside (20) ATPE Campus rep and membership chair 17-year ATPE member, 13-year ATPE volunteer

Talk to the local unit leaders found in this list or contact ATPE Member Services (member_ services@atpe.org) to find a “buddy.”

Three cheers for the red, white and black ATPE members are a very creative bunch, and this is never more apparent than during ATPE events, when attendees are often decked out in member-designed T-shirts. Animal print, sequins, communityspecific details—the sky’s the limit when it comes to these designs!
