Professional Educators of Tennessee is a statewide professional association whose members come from all aspects of the educational systems in our state. We represent those who teach and touch the future. We are a true professional association whose members include teachers, administrators and non-certified staff from kindergarten to graduate school level, public or private.
We embrace the challenge of keeping the teaching profession honorable. We concentrate strictly upon education issues, the improvement of teaching and putting students first. We also historically oppose compulsory membership and/or endorsement of political candidates. We believe education is a profession, and we oppose strike and work stoppages as they interfere with the rights of children to receive an uninterrupted education.
Whether it’s professional development, an insider’s perspective on state and federal legislation, member benefits or legal services, Professional Educators of Tennessee is your best option. As a member, you will have access to information and professional development opportunities that will dramatically impact your career. We are the voice of professional classroom educators across the state, reflecting Tennessee values and Tennessee priorities. As a member, you will enjoy all of the advantages that come with working at the forefront of your profession with an influential voice. We are committed to creating the most open and accessible education association in Tennessee. To send questions, comments or concerns please contact us.
