New Teacher Resources
Starting out as a new teacher is exciting. The school year always comes with new rewards and new challenges. The Maine Education Association (MEA) is here to help support you in your career with everything from professional development opportunities to understanding your new contract…providing you with a community of educators that, as a member, you have access to year round. Start out your career on the right foot and use these helpful toolkits to dig deeper into what you really need to know before you teach your first class. The Teacher's Handbook with Tips for Success in Your Career will guide you on a path to help you understand everything from communicating with parents to understanding your evaluation. In addition, a The MEA New Teacher's Toolkit will help you link to all the education resources needed as you start out in your new career.
These resources are just some of the ways MEA membership benefits you, the teacher.
