“With all the challenges that school principals statewide have encountered in 2020, I look forward to representing Ysleta ISD and Region 19 in TEPSA’s efforts to ensure all of our students and teachers are successful…”
Norma Myers, principal of Capistrano Elementary School, has been named the 2020-2021 president-elect of Region 19 for the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA).
“It is an honor to provide my service, leadership, and knowledge for such an admirable organization as TEPSA,” said Myers, who served as principal of South Loop Elementary School before it was consolidated this year with Capistrano Elementary School.
TEPSA is a statewide group that “strives to improve the education of Texas school children and the working conditions of its members.”
“Professional engagement is the hallmark of an instructional leader, TEPSA officials said – and as such, “we look forward to Norma’s contributions to the association during the upcoming year,” TEPSA Executive Director Harley Eckhart said.
TEPSA provides a wide variety of services and opportunities for Texas school principals and supervisors, including leadership training, networking opportunities, information, and support for school leaders; maintaining a positive impact on legislators, policy makers, communities, and other stakeholders; and raising the level of respect for and prestige of the principalship.
“With all the challenges that school principals statewide have encountered in 2020, I look forward to representing Ysleta ISD and Region 19 in TEPSA’s efforts to ensure all of our students and teachers are successful,” Myers added.
TEPSA, whose trademark is educational leaders learning with and from each other, has served Texas school leaders since 1917. Member-owned and member- governed, TEPSA consists of more than 5,900 members who direct the activities of 3 million school children in pre-K through eighth grades.
