Several paid test proctoring positions will soon be available for TRTA members courtesy of Ms. Valerie Kretschman. Here is a short description:

Randstad was recently awarded the contract with K12 online schools to provide test proctors for the upcoming Texas State Assessments for their students.  These positions are paid and would require the person to be available for all test sessions (one week in April, two weeks in May and one week in June). We believe a good fit for these positions would be retired teachers. Specifically, we need to fill two more test proctor positions in Odessa.  The Odessa test site is at the MCM Grande Hotel Fundome at 6201 E. Business 20. Pay equals $15/hour.  See your March Newsletter also.  Phone number and email address of Ms Kretschman appear below.

TRTA supports maintaining the current defined benefit plan for all current and future TRS retirees, relying upon the tenants established in the 83rd legislative session to ensure the fund’s long-term solvency. To the extent possible, provide a cost-of-living increase or supplemental payment for current TRS retirees.

 

WELCOME TO THE ODESSA RETIRED SCHOOL PERSONNEL ASSOCIATION.

 

Texas Retired Teachers Association is the only organization working exclusively for Texas retired school personnel.
 

We are a local unit of TRTA with almost 380 members, and our goal is 400+ members.  Most of our members are retired from Ector County I. S. D.  

TRTA is the only organization working exclusively for Texas retired school personnel. Our local unit supports the state TRTA organization and the TRT Foundation charitable projects.

We are part of District 18 which includes seven local units in an area served by Region 18 Education Service Center.

The current newsletter from the TRTA Executive Director, Tim Lee, THE INSIDE LINE can be viewed from the TRTA website.   This is a good way to stay informed on issues important to TRTA members and retired school personnel.

                      "Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear
                      by the blood of the Revolution, never to violate . . . the laws of the country, and
                      reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother . . . let it be taught
                      in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges;--let it be preached from the pulpit, 
                      proclaimed in the legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice."   --Abraham Lincoln
