Student Tennessee Education Association
Professional Advocacy & Engagement begins here!
STEA exists to help our members move smoothly from student on campus to beginning teacher. STEA gives you the edge during the crucial first five years in classroom.
College can't do that, no matter how it good it is. It takes veteran teachers helping you find your way. STEA adds to your formal education by providing life lessons about salaries, contracts, competency testing, evaluation, discipline, certification requirements and more.
Join the 60,000 other students across the nation as part of NEA's student program (NEA-SP) as a member of STEA today. There are over 3 million teachers, education support professionals and students just like you waiting to welcome and support you. Plus during your first year of teaching and regular NEA membership, you'll be eligible to
receive a rebate of $20
for each year you were a student member.
