ATPE NEWS 31 WHY I VOLUNTEER I volunteer for ATPE because I firmly believe in the importance of providing guidance, support, and education to fresh, bright- eyed professionals. Educators listen to other educators, and being an ATPE volunteer gives me the opportunity to be a leader in Texas education. I help fellow teachers, paraprofessionals, and other educators stay informed about their profession, and I get to network with and meet other outstanding educators. Through ATPE, I stay up to date with statewide education events and news, which I then share with my little corner of Texas. Being an ATPE volunteer is rewarding because I get to be an ambassador for my profession. C I N DY B A R N E S TRANSITION SPECIALIST, BEAUMONT ISD 37-YEAR ATPE MEMBER Photo by Wyatt McSpadden
