The Fall 2022 ATPE News is the first issue to be primarily delivered digitally. You can flip through the full digital edition, or click to specific articles below.

In this issue:

  • What is the secret to mentoring success in Gilmer ISD? Dawn Harris and her cadre explain how the Invest Mentoring program addresses what new teachers need, why mentoring is so important for retention, and what makes their program unique.
  • Take a look at what fuels the success of Seguin ISD’s historic music education program—receiving national recognition for four consecutive years—and the integral role the community plays in supporting performances and generating excitement for the program.
  • There is a growing mental health crisis in our schools. In the wake of an ongoing pandemic and the tragic shooting in Uvalde, we explore how students, educators, and their families are experiencing an unprecedented amount of trauma.

Special sections:


  • Join us as we visit ATPE “neighborhoods” all over Texas to get an inside look at what volunteers are doing to recruit, retain, and rejoice with their fellow ATPE members.
  • In “Your Voice,” we explore the vat of hot topics that public education is currently swirling in and why a culture of voting among educators is crucial.
  • In “Your Ally,” learn your rights as an educator when you feel you have been threatened in the classroom. What can or should be done in response?
  • Meet Antonio Mercado, a social studies teacher at Economedes High School in Edinburg CISD and ATPE’s 2021-22 Top Recruiter, in our “Volunteer Spotlight.”
