Student-Missouri NEA/Teacher Education Club
The Jefferson College Teacher Education Club/SMNEA is a student organization designed specifically for students who are going to be teachers. The Student NEA was founded in 1937 as a department of the National Education Association. NEA is a professional organization run by teachers. We are the leading advocates for students, teachers and public schools.
The purpose of the SMNEA "shall be to develop in prospective educators an understanding of the education profession, to provide for a united student voice in matters affecting their profession, to influence the conditions under which prospective educators are prepared, to advance the interests and welfare of students preparing for a career in education, to promote and protect human and civil rights, and to stimulate the highest ideals and professional ethics, standards, and attitudes."
