What Our Members Say
Being an educator isn’t a job, it’s a calling. It’s also personally rewarding and professionally demanding. That’s why the MEA strives to provide you with the support you need to be great at what you do.
Once you belong to the Association you won’t ever be alone at work again. As an ESP, your work makes teaching and learning possible. That’s why the Association strives to provide you with the support you need to be great at what you do.
Being an MEA member provides me with ongoing professional development that I can’t get anywhere else. I appreciate having a support system.
I think it is really important for people to take ownership of their profession like it is a profession and not just a job-because it is a profession. Teachers know teaching best.
I don’t think people realize how committed the MEA is to growing the profession of teaching. When you see all of the people committed to the improvement of this professional organization, it makes you proud to be a member.
I want to be a voice for kids who are under-served. We can’t standardize everything, and lawmakers need to understand that. That’s why I am an MEA Advocate for Children and Education. MEA is my megaphone so I can be the voice for my students.
