Founded in 1854, the New Hampshire State Teachers Association became one of the “founding ten” state education associations that formed the National Education Association in 1857. Known today as NEA-NH, and comprised of more than 16,000 members, our mission to advocate for the children of New Hampshire and public school employees and to promote lifelong learning remains true after more than 150 years. Our members are public school educators in all stages of their careers, including classroom teachers and other certified professionals, instructors at public higher education institutions, students preparing for a teaching career, education support personnel and those retired from the profession.
To reach our vision of a society made stronger through world class public education, we focus daily on our mission to strengthen and support public education by serving our members’ professional, political, economic, and advocacy needs. We are leaders in promoting excellence in public education, and building coalitions to advocate for children in order to strengthen and defend public education.
NEA-New Hampshire gives our members the resources, respect and recognition they deserve to support our student’s achievements and advance our professional careers. This includes helping members organize and win better pay, benefits, and working conditions; receiving professional and effective employment-related representation; access to exclusive, member-only financial services and insurance benefits; and professional development opportunities.
We set out to ensure every student is surrounded by caring, qualified, and committed educators by offering tools and ideas on lesson plans, teaching strategies, and other advice and support for both new and seasoned educators alike. We ensure all of a student’s needs are met by contributing toward a healthy, safe, engaged, supportive and challenging learning environment.
We are committed to improving student achievement in New Hampshire public schools, providing learning opportunities for teachers and students, and ensuring that all students are ready to learn. Motivated by the belief that a child’s physical, social or emotional needs should never stand in the way of classroom success, NEA-NH created the New Hampshire Foundation for Teaching and Learning (NHFTL) in 1996. The NHFTL Children’s Fund has been focused on improving teaching, student learning and education for public school teachers and students across the state, working to provide public school students with items and services needed for school success that are not provided by other agencies.
Things like glasses, clothing, medical care, transportation and school supplies, to name just a few of the ways NHFTL has stepped in with emergency stopgap measures for New Hampshire’s public school children. NHFTL is a direct impact program, making a difference one child at a time because we believe in opportunity, respect and fairness. The Fund has distributed over $140,000 in grants in the past few years alone to provide for the basic needs of our students.
If we’re serious about every child’s future, let’s get serious about doing what works: ensuring that kids come to school with what they need to succeed and that educators have the resources, respect and recognition to support their student’s achievements. That is what NEA-New Hampshire has been working towards for more than 150 years.
We got into this profession because we know the real meanings of the words “priority,”“future,” and “fairness.” We need lawmakers who do, too. We need elected officials who will make sure our students come first and keep extreme political ideology out of the discussion. From early childhood education to ESSA to higher education, NEA-NH is the education policy champion in New Hampshire.
For more than 150 years the professional educators in the Granite State have stood strong in our efforts for a society made better through public education. Together we have achieved great things because we are NEA-NH. We are proud of who we are, what we do, what we have accomplished and what we stand for.
