Your first year(s) in the classroom are never easy, and Texas’ newest generation of educators needs unique opportunities to learn from and network with each other. That’s the idea behind our newest member program, Gen ATPE, which provides unique educational and networking opportunities for ATPE members ages 30 or younger. No additional application or membership fee is required. To receive information on Gen ATPE opportunities, just make sure your correct birthdate is on file in your member profile.

This fall, we’re excited to bring you two free Gen ATPE webinars. Live webinar participants will earn one hour of continuing professional education (CPE) credit per webinar.

How to Engage Families in Their Children’s Education
5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12
Presented by Karen Hames and Shelly Couch

One of your biggest challenges as a teacher is finding strategies for getting your students’ families involved in their education. Veteran educators Karen Hames and Shelly Couch will share lessons learned from their careers and explain what really works—and what really doesn’t. Plus, they’ll cover what parental/family involvement looks like post-pandemic, as well as what to do if you don’t feel like your administrators are supportive. By the end of the webinar, you’ll have some time-tested techniques to try this year.


Choosing and Using Diverse Literature
5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26
Presented by Stephanie Stoebe

In this webinar, discover sources to find new literature for your classroom library. There are many beautiful books that can add a new lens for learning. Literature should serve not only as a mirror for students to see the reflection of their lives but also as a window for them to see worlds outside of themselves. See how adding new and diverse books can even impact growth in reading skills.
