Student teachers can secure $2,000,000 in liability insurance during their student teaching placement for only $49 for one year or $79 for two years. They are also eligible for a discounted professional membership after completing their student membership.

Retired educators and supporters may join at a reduced rate of $39 annually and enjoy numerous member benefits. Visit Member Benefits to learn more.
