Who We Are
The 35,000 members of the Missouri National Education Association are public school teachers, librarians, counselors, coaches, school psychologists and psychiatrists, administrators and faculty in colleges and universities. We are proud to include among our membership all categories of education support professionals: bus drivers and custodians, teacher aides and paraprofessionals, nurses, school secretaries and food service workers.

Our members are employed in school districts across the state, as well as in state schools, community colleges and on university campuses. College students studying to be educators are our members, as are a growing number of former school employees who are retired from education.

Missouri NEA is affiliated with the 3.2 million member National Education Association.
