Making a difference

Becoming a member of Vermont-NEA connects you with a movement of educators and school staff supporting each other. Our union advocates for the funding and resources that you, your schools, and your students deserve. This includes:

Together we're stronger. Together we're heard. 

With more members like you, we’ll have a stronger voice so that we can secure real pay increases, change our workplace, and protect our rights.

What’s so great about public schools is that they bring so many students together with various perspectives, so it’s a real opportunity to help them develop a more humanizing approach to viewing the world.
Quote by: Christine Nold, Social Studies Teacher


VT-NEA members are as diverse as the students we represent, but united in our purpose: championing justice and excellence in public education. VT-NEA members can belong to the movement in every phase of their career!
