STEA is one of the nation's largest state affiliates for students preparing to teach. Membership is open to students enrolled in any Tennessee college or University. Through its affiliation with the Tennessee Education Association (TEA) and the National Education Association (NEA), our student program leads tomorrow's teachers to a bright professional future. STEA adds to your formal education by providing life lessons about salaries, contracts, competency testing, evaluation, discipline, certification requirements and more.
