– ISEA Mission Statement.

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.
