Region 9


Welcome to Region 9 ATPE. We serve most of the 37 schools in the 12 rural counties of North Texas.

ATPE is all inclusive, so we have classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, bus drivers, cafeteria staff and more. If you have student teachers, or know of students in education classes, please, let them know ATPE is FREE for them. (there’s an online app for that!).

We meet as a region periodically through the school year and invite all ATPE members to attend and vote on the affairs of our region. Keep an eye on your email and the region calendar for the meetings.

We look forward to working alongside you, so please, email or call us with ways we may be of help. Hope to see you at our gatherings in the Region, at the Capitol, and at Summit.

At your service,
Region 9 Officers
