Welcome to the MTA! Whether you're 22 or 52, or somewhere in between, MTA is committed to supporting you in the critical early years of your career.

When you join MTA, NEA and your local teachers/educators association, you are joining a 2.5 million-member family of pre-school through grade 12 educators, higher education faculty and staff and education support professionals. It is an opportunity to work with others who share your professional goals and concerns.

Check out A Road Map for Beginning Teachers, an employee guide produced annually by the MTA New Member Committee. The guide is designed to give you useful information about your rights and responsibilities as a new teacher. The Just for New Teachers Conference and the New Member Program at the MTA Summer Conference are two great opportunities for new educators to network, get involved, learn more about the MTA and get a firm grasp on the policies and laws that govern public education.

Just For New Teachers Conference

Our annual conference is open to MTA educators in their first four years of practice.
