Building the future

Joining a professional teaching organization or association is one of the best decisions a teacher can make to gain access to benefits and services that lead to success.

Membership goes beyond receiving an ID card — the benefits and services the organization provides can strengthen teachers’ professional and educational practices.


When considering which organization to join, you should select at least one organization in your content field. Networking in these organizations will enable you to share best practices and ideas to implement in your current position.


Professional Development

Most memberships provide access to free or discounted professional development opportunities in the form of conferences, face-to-face workshops, online discussions, e-mentoring and blogs.


Commitment to Excellence

Membership in a professional organization demonstrates your commitment to self-improvement and excellence in your field. You will have access to information about the latest trends and updates from current practices such as Common Core through books and periodicals.

The Goal is to Grow the Education Community Network

We are pleased to forge and strengthen connections between teachers from diverse backgrounds and the leaders who will help them grow their careers in classrooms across the country.

Strategic practices with a laser focus on diversity increases the possibilities of attaining a workforce reflective of our diverse communities. We must continue to explore opportunities and understanding of diversity and how to apply in our everyday practices. Allowing professional organizations and affinity groups help us along the way is a great option.
