Certificated Staff

Educating children requires collaboration among a wide range of highly skilled professionals, including reading and math specialists, school counselors, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, and many more. MSEA is increasingly focused on specialists’ specific issues and concerns, such as certification status, salaries, and the tools you need to do your job.

Certificated specialists play an important role in every school in the state, providing the skills and expertise students need to achieve their best in school.

Throughout K-12 education, specialists work directly with students and their families, providing tools and interventions that bolster both skills and confidence, and pave the way for future success.
