President's Message - January 2019

TASPA President
Johjania Najera
Executive Director of Human Resources
Keller ISD

2019 is going to be a great year! At the beginning of each year, many people set resolutions, promises and/or goals, both personal and professional. Each new year, I challenge myself to live simply, live fully and make each day greater than the one before. HOW do I rise to that challenge and WHY do I initiate that challenge?


  • Make the decision to wake up happy each day! Take one minute each morning and realize that you woke up--in a bed, in a warm home and you are employed. LOVE your job! Simple.
  • Be compassionate, thoughtful, and aware. Everyone is different and may not choose the same decision I choose to make each day.
  • Be contagious. Fully share your joy!
  • If you miss a day, make the next day greater.
  • Take care of yourself. We only have one life.


  • It’s simple and it’s the right thing to do!
  • I thrive on serving and taking care of others; I want to make a difference.
  • I don’t want to have any regrets.

Simply said, I am honored to be your 2019 TASPA President. The needs of our members and our organization as a whole will drive my course this year. So, how can I help?
