Take a sneak peek inside education philanthropist Charles Butt’s latest enterprise, the Holdsworth Center, a $200 million training facility that brings CEO-style leadership development to Texas public educators.

Find out how two new laws passed by the 87th Legislature, HB 3979 & SB 3, will affect how you teach civics, history, and current events in your classroom.


Meet Roya Dinbali, a high school forensics teacher, Nacogdoches ATPE president and campus rep, a Region 7 ATPE officer, and our latest volunteer spotlight.

In Your Voice, hear how your votes affect public education and your profession and why public education should be your top priority at the ballot box.

Finally, in Your Ally, we answer your questions regarding your protected planning time. What does the law actually say about it?

As always, you will also learn how your association continues to support efforts to elevate public education in Texas.
