Welcome to the Mainland Retired Teachers Association web site! We welcome retired teachers, administrators, and all support personnel, as well as nutrition, custodial, transportation, and maintenance services personnel. Most of our members come from the Texas City, La Marque, Dickinson, Santa Fe, and Hitchcock School Districts, as well as College of the Mainland. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month from September through May.  Come join us at 12:30 p.m. and share friendship and refreshments with other retired personnel before each meeting begins.  The meetings, held at Nessler Civic Center, 2010 5th Avenue North in Texas City, will keep you informed of the latest that TRTA is doing to protect and improve our TRS benefits.  

Dues are $50 for the year 2016-2017.  $35 of that amount goes to TRTA for state dues, and the other $15 is to cover local expenses and help with our Children's Book Project in the fall and in the spring, our scholarship for a graduate planning to pursue a degree in education.  If you would like to join, you can mail a check made out to MRTA to Treasurer, Pauline Liggio, at 17231 Saturn Lane, Houston, TX 77058-2293.

Join us for our meeting on October 18 in the Captain's Room of Nessler Center at 12:30 p.m.  Karyn Marshall  (retired Heights teacher) will be informing us about a grant that she and her husband Bill Marshall applied for from Texas City ISD’s Foundation for the Future.  This grant allows 3rd grade students to show appreciation for the service our veterans gave by getting a better understanding of patriotism, community service and thanking those that help us.

Looking ahead: 

On November 15, members will wrap our 900 books as gifts for children in area preschools.

On December 20, Carla Boone will entertain us with her beautiful Christmas songs.
