Aloe Elementary School Principal Kristina Hurley has been named Region 3 President of the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) Board of Directors for 2021-22.

She received her Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies, majoring in Special Education, from the University of Texas at Austin and Master of Education in Administration from the University of Houston-Victoria.
“I am excited to serve as the TEPSA Region 3 President for the 2021-2022 school year as I love being part of an organization that supports school leaders and strives to improve public education for Texas schoolchildren,” said Hurley. “Along with TEPSA's hashtag, #WeLeadTX, I look forward to working with other school leaders as we continue to ‘Lead’ Texas in Region 3!”
TEPSA’s Board of Directors advance the association’s mission to build leadership capacity to ensure Texas PK-8 students and teachers are successful, said Harley Eckhart, executive director of TEPSA in a press release put out by the association.
