2017 District 6 Fall Convention

TRTA District 6 had a great Fall Convention. Our speakers included State Representative Ernest Bailes, TRTA 1st VP Patricia Macias and TRS Governmental Relations Director Merita Zoga. We got a real inside look at how legislation is passed, or not passed, in Austin. We also learned about the datails of health insurance changes. So good to be a part of an organization that looks out for its members.

Contact them about becoming involved in your local and their efforts to improve the lives of retired educators in Texas.  These links will take you to their local web page.  Burleson County members should contact either the Brazos, Brenham or Milam locals.

The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation recently awarded a $500 classroom assistance grant to Donna Magjarevich, a dyslexia teacher at Selman Intermediate School in Sealy ISD. TRTF gives 15 such grants statewide annually. Magjarevich applied for the grant to update the dyslexia program currently used with the students she serves. The Foundation is the charitable arm of the Texas Retired Teachers Association.
