Region 11


Welcome from Region 11 ATPE! My name is Teri Naya and I am your Region 11 President. I am a reading interventionist with Birdville ISD.

After a super night at the Texas Ranger’s game last spring, and two outstanding fall leadership lunches, we are looking ahead to spring events. The first of these is “ATPE at the Capital” March 5 and 6. Region 11 will provide a small rebate to all locals who send representatives. This is an important opportunity to have your voice heard on education issues. We hope to see you there!

Region 11 Spring Convention will be April 1 at the Palace Theater in Grapevine. We will be electing new officers and voting on some region bylaw changes. Be sure to come by and hear what is new in Region 11.

The Region 11 officers are working hard to serve you. We are here to help. Please feel free to contact us for assistance, or with any questions you might have.
