Get the Respect You Deserve

NWPE is an affiliate of the Association of American Educators, a nonpartisan organization founded to help you achieve the respect, recognition, and reward you deserve. NWPE offers you a powerful, affordable choice. NWPE members enjoy teaching scholarships, classroom mini-grants, educational resources, consultation on employment-related issues, guaranteed legal services for job protection issues, and regular communications for a more enriched and personally rewarding career.


Dietrich educator Thad Bigger notes, "I appreciate how NWPE provides me with timely, relevant information and advice that makes me a better, more informed educator. Plus, you can't beat its affordable liability protection and guaranteed legal services.  I wholeheartedly recommend NWPE. It is a top notch organization that is tuned into the real needs and interests of today's educators."  See more teacher testimonials here.

Professionalism and Protection Without the Politics

NWPE stays focused on what is best for students and those who place them as their highest priority. NWPE does not divert dues to politics unrelated to education nor contribute them to political parties, candidates, issues or causes that are not related to education. The NEA, on the other hand, confirms its dedication to advancing a social and economic agenda using member dues (while also sharing how it feels about those who oppose its political views) here. Unfortunately, the union's political agenda often counteracts what is best for students.

Professional Pride
