Join DSEA!

The Delaware State Education Association works to promote, advance, and protect public education, the education profession, and the rights and interests of our members.

The Value of Membership!

Professional Development

DSEA is one of the largest providers of high-quality professional development trainings in the state. Earn PDPs in everything from classroom management to teacher evaluations.

A Say in Your Future

From the state house to the local school board, elected officials are making decisions that impact your classroom — you must be part of the discussion. DSEA members form the strongest voice advocating for more time to teach, fair evaluations, salary increases, and more.

Peer Support

Teaching is tough — there is no reason to face it alone. DSEA members have exclusive access to a support system of tens of thousands of educators, and DSEA staff who live and work in your district.

Leadership Training

Improve public education in your district by learning the skills to be an effective leader in your school, community and state.

Legal Protection

Members get access to the best team of education law experts in the state. Also, liability insurance only works if there is no “violation of any board rule or policy” — DSEA has you covered.

Member Discounts

Members can take advantage of deep discounts on vacations, movie tickets, life insurance, cars and more. The cash you’ll save more than off-sets the cost of membership.

Member Voices: ‘Why do I support DSEA?”

“As an educator today, you never know when something beyond your control can happen at work. My union was there when I needed them!”

Alina Wrench
Teacher, Indian River High School

“Being an educator can prove to be a difficult task at times. With the support of my union, I am able to do what is in the best interests of my students.”

Kizzy Perkins
Paraeducator, Anna R. Mote Elementary School

“Because of DSEA’s hard work and dedication to passing the Paid Family Leave bill, I will be able to stay home with my second child for 12 paid weeks instead of exhausting my sick leave. We are very lucky to have a union that fights so hard for educators.”

Lori Sebastian
Teacher, Brick Mill Elementary School

What Are You Waiting For?

No other professional organization does more for Delaware educators. With your support, we can protect our profession today, and for the next generation of teachers.
