Student Tennessee Education Association

Professional Advocacy & Engagement begins here!

Student Tennessee Education Association

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 the 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. You can also   join STEA now .

Chapter News

Summer 2018 - Six (6) TSU-STEA members participated in the Tennessee Education Association (TEA)s and National Education Association (NEA) representative assemblies; in addition to their own NEA-Aspiring Educators (NEA-AE) conference in Minneapolis, MN. Local secretary, CarVaughn Page, ended his term as a member of the NEA-AE Advisory Committee. While he was unsuccessful in his campaign for NEA-Aspiring Educator's Student Chairperson, he still advocated for a task force to investigate how HBCU/Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) address the recruitment of diverse educators in the profession. This new business item was formally adopted at the NEA representative assembly. TSU delegates were graduates: Jenika Headley-Greene and Raymond Boyd; and current students: Bisa Lasco-Gilchrist, Arianna Herrington, and Tommy Norman.
