Region 1 Representative

Greetings Region 1 Art Educators,

First, let me thank all of you for your hard work,your passion for the arts, and for the dedication and contribution you offer your students, school district and community.

Secondly, my name is Hector Cruz, a 27 year educator. I am in my 13th year at Weslaco High School. I just attended my second TAEA Annual Conference in Dallas, I can honestly say, "I don't know why I hadn't attended any sooner." The 2012 Annual Conference in San Antonio blew me away and in 2013, I jumped head first into TAEA. Thank you all for electing me the Region 1 TAEA Representative.

My goal for Region 1 is both to increase in membership and to help organize a Local Region 1 Art Education Association. I am hopefully we can generate enough interest to get an association started again in our region. Also, each of you should be thinking of a TAEA Regional Conference for our area and how we can plan and implement a conference. As you may have seen, the Arts in the Region 1, especially in the McAllen area have exploded. The Monitor's daily section Valley Life features and promotes both local and visiting artist as well featuring all the different art media. It would be great for our art education community to be part of this excitement.

Finally, I welcome everyone's suggestions, ideas and help in bringing the arts into Region 1. Give me a call or an email — I look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

Hector Cruz
Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) Region 1 Representative
