Supporting Teachers & Certificated Staff

Teachers

Research shows that the quality of the classroom teacher is one of the most critical components for student success. MSEA offers high-quality programs and trainings and advocates for the classroom and school resources you need to meet the constantly changing demands of your job.

Maryland’s top-ranking public schools are the professional home to more than 60,000 teachers in 24 counties and Baltimore City. Our teachers are focused on providing Maryland students, parents, and communities with great public schools for every child.

Whether gifted or disadvantaged, special needs or first-generation English speaking, students benefit from Maryland’s quality teaching force. Using best teaching practices and their own innovation, Maryland teachers work hard to deliver lively, relevant lessons in classrooms across the state.

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.
