Tennessee Education Association

Great Public Schools for All Students




TEA proudly represents education support professionals (ESP) who work as classroom assistants, grounds and building custodians, security officers, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, library and payroll clerks, health workers, machine operators and more - from kindergarten through higher education. ESP members are on the front lines in every school district throughout the state, working hand in hand with teachers and administrators.



The number of ESP are growing both nationally and in Tennessee, and numbers speak. By joining TEA, ESP have a voice in the decisions that are made about their profession. Not only does membership give them a voice, it also protects careers and provides benefits and discounts. Plus, conferences are offered that cater specifically to ESP. Join our team today!
