AMET supports migrant educators of Texas to ensure that every migrant student in Texas has access to a quality education, and empowers individuals at the national, state, and local levels as they equip each child with the skills and resources necessary to be successful.
And the 2021 Conference Theme is....
MIGRANT EDUCATION: RISING WITH PASSION, PERSISTENCE AND POWER
Dear AMET Members,
Thank you for your recent support at the AMET Conference. We are grateful to each of you for your
willingness to be a part of our organization as a participating member. For those members that
attended the AMET Conference recently, recorded sessions will be available on the WHOVA site app for 6 months. While there were some glitches with some of the recorded sessions, most were successful. So please take advantage of what is available and feel free to continue to build your professional development.
As the year 2020 closes, we want to wish everyone, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! We are
hopeful that the New Year will bring great new beginnings and solutions to our current community
concerns. Let us remember all the great things we accomplished, the memories we made, the
difference we continue to make, and the blessing we are to each other across the state.
We will be a light to those around us, as we set forth to make great things happen for our migrant
students for the 2021 year. Let us commit to serving each other as we make our migrant programs
stronger and better for the upcoming year. We pray for the wisdom and knowledge, to Identify, recruit, and serve our students across the state. We ask that our national leaders and state leaders will be inspired to make decisions that will benefit our programs and reach our students. We hope that our most vulnerable population is able to take advantage of the great things that America has to offer, an education.
I look forward to working with you this next year as we continue to advocate for our students and their families.
ART CONTEST WINNER
Congratulations to Ilse María Paredes Mares whose artwork was selected as the 2020 AMET Art Contest Winner
Ilse is a 2020 graduate of Dalhart High School in Region 16 and plans to pursue an associate degree this fall at Frank Phillips College. Ilse describes her art submission as “a person holding a book from which a plant sprouts to symbolize that migrant education provides opportunities that lead to growth. I added words that I associate with migrant education in the pages of the book. I used colors like the very light blue background to represent the clear sky, and to symbolize a bright future achieved through education.”
As the 2020 Art Contest Winner, Ilse will receive a $500 scholarship, and her artwork will be a featured on the AMET web site and at the AMET Virtual Fall Conference.
