Welcome!

Welcome to Our Website.

 


 

     

Welcome to our TRTA District 8 website.

Our district is comprised of 16 local units, with I-20 being the basic southern boundary and the TEXAS border being the Northern and Eastern boundaries.  Our western-most local unit is the city of Paris.

 


                                  

 

 

 

 

 

                    

from your District 8 President,

                                               Joan Cook!

 

One of my personal goals is to involve members and develop leadership at every level of membership in District 8 TRTA. I believe this is needed more than ever, beginning at the local level. Involve as many people as possible in meetings and projects. Talk to members and potential members one on one in person as much as is possible. Reach out to local school districts and active educators. Use social media in positive and productive ways. Be well-informed about public education, retirement and legislative issues. Be an informed registered voter who VOTES in every election! Always stay positive and help us tell everyone of the benefits of membership in TRTA. Thank you for being a part of the Texas Retired Teachers Association and District 8 in Northeast Texas. Our goals, as the advocate of all public school retirees, include gaining memberships, reaching out to our active educators, and protecting our retirement system and public education.
