Region 4



Dear Region 4 Members,

With the exception of the four years I lived in Austin to attend the University of Texas, I’ve lived my entire life in the Houston area. I graduated from a high school in this area and now I teach at a high school in this area. I say this not to brag (although being a Houstonian and a Texan are certainly things to brag about!) but to establish my local bonafides; I am proud to call this area my home. I’ve never been more proud to do so than I am now, though.

Like many of you, Hurricane Harvey shook me. This was Mother Nature at her most cruel, and though I had lived through Allison and watched from Austin during Ike, this was something I had never seen before. As the waters rose, I was terrified. At the end of the storm, I was lucky: the water got into my garage and to my doorstep, but stopped there. I know I’m much luckier than many of you in that regard.

The reason I’m so proud to be a Houstonian and a Texan now more than ever, though, is what happened after Harvey. Regardless of race, religion, political ideology, or anything else people stepped up and helped their neighbors. Texans can be an ornery bunch and are fiercely independent, but that didn’t stop people from doing everything they could for their fellow Houstonians. My wife and I went to our city’s donation center a few days after the storm—a local gym—and I was floored at how full it was. You could hardly move between the volunteers and the goods they were sorting. Houston has shown that it is, through everything else, a family.

ATPE is a family, too. Your Region 4 Executive Committee is here to serve you in whatever capacity you need and will continue to do so. This has been a rough start to the year for many, but we will show that true Houstonian and Texan grit by rebuilding, bigger and better than ever. The past few weeks have shown Anne Frank to be more right than ever when she said, “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Let us keep that in mind as we (re)start the school year.
