Quality Teaching and Learning

Quality Teaching & Learning

All students deserve quality teachers and a school with a quality nurse, librarian, counselor, and more.
In addition to providing resources to support educators throughout their career, AEA advocates for policies that: Promote a statewide systemic approach to quality teaching and learning, including highly effective educator preparation programs and certification, professional development, mentoring and induction, career development pathways, and compensation structures; promote equitable access to social-emotional learning for all students through curriculum and training for educators; and recognize educators as professionals and ensure them the autonomy to deliver a flexible curriculum and make instruction-based decisions to meet the needs of their students.

When I became a teacher, I knew that the way to improve the teaching profession was to belong to my professional association.
