About ISEA

Purpose and Power in Community
The ISEA represents education professionals in Iowa's cities, suburbs and towns. Strong public schools are a foundation of a strong community. NEA has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities across the United States. We bring the expertise, drive, and dedication of 3 million educators and allies to advancing justice and excellence in public education.
Our members bring their experiences working at every level of education to shape our organization and impact. Here’s who we are and how we do it.

Our Mission & Core Values

We represent classroom teachers and other licensed professional staff, school support staff workers, retired teachers, area education agency employees, community college faculty, and future teachers. We are an integral part of the 3 million-member National Education Association. We work together to make sure that Iowa’s 500,000 public school students get nothing short of the best education possible.

Our Leaders

Our members elect delegates–who vote for ISEA's top officers, debate issues, and set ISEA policy. Here are your leaders, making your voice heard.
