September 2018


In our lives, if we are fortunate, we recognize a purpose and responsibility in which we choose to embrace for a career. We are gifted with passion that drives us to ensure our calling is accomplished. I am blessed to work every day to help make the lives of educators and students better across Tennessee.


We want to build lasting relationships with our members. That is why Professional Educators of Tennessee focuses on creating value for all of our members. We know that our members want to do extremely well in their career path, and develop their skills to their fullest potential. That is why we developed the state’s first online learning portal for educators, with many of the classes being TASL accredited for our members. You can learn on your time and at your convenience.


Protecting your career is just as important as protecting any other life investment. We offer a premium package of benefits, including exceptional legal protection and liability coverage. Our $2 Million professional liability insurance is unmatched in Tennessee. Our member benefits and discounts will save you money, sometimes as much as the cost of membership. Your membership in Professional Educators of Tennessee never stops working for you.


Through strategic communications and presentations, our voices are heard in support of our most precious resource, children, along with those who educate them. We understand that education is a determining factor to every child’s success in the future. We offer a modern approach to teacher representation and educational advocacy, as well as promoting professionalism, collaboration and excellence without a partisan agenda. Your dues are never used for endorsing or supporting political candidates. We are building key relationships and public policy through strategic bridge building across the state with stakeholders and policymakers because we offer results-oriented solutions. We continue to seek to leverage member insights into our advocacy efforts.


We work to ensure every educator has development, resources, and support. We are committed to the success of every child, by supporting those on the frontlines doing the work. Our state office staff and resources will be there when you need them. We understand that engaged members are our greatest asset. The more involved you become in our organization, the more you will be seen as a leader in your own community. We welcome your involvement. More importantly, we need it. Thank you for your membership. It is our honor to serve you! 



All the Best,



– JC Bowman, Executive Director
