|About Us - Our Mission|
Our primary mission is to create a quality educational experience in a safe environment for our students. Our top priority is the education and achievement of children in our state, as the organization is guided by the core principles which were established when Professional Educators of Tennessee was founded and these are still the foundation of the organization today.
As an educator you are also a consumer, and you both expect and deserve quality services at an affordable price. That's just one on the reasons you should become a member of Professional Educators of Tennessee. We are the premier professional association in Tennessee because our association offers a premium package of benefits including exceptional legal protection and liability coverage. Our educators' professional liability insurance is unmatched in Tennessee. Our member services and discounts will save you money, and our state office staff and resources will be there when you need them. As a non-union, professional educators' organization we have been described as advancing the profession by offering a modern approach to teacher representation and educational advocacy, as well as promoting professionalism, collaboration and excellence without a partisan agenda.
We promote excellence in education, so that our members receive the respect, recognition, and reward they deserve as professionals. We choose to collaborate, not separate, a natural choice for a group that is member-owned and member driven. We work to advance the profession through tireless advocacy and professional development. Our members recognize the challenges facing our state and nation, and they invite you to join the professional association that delivers results for teachers.
