TCTA membership is open only to non-administrative professional personnel.
We take counselors, school nurses, librarians, diagnosticians, and education aides, among others who work directly with students.
But we don't accept administrators as members, for the same reason that administrator organizations don't take teachers. You need an organization that is fully focused on your needs in the classroom, whether we're representing you at the Capitol or addressing employment-related legal issues.
Most of the legal issues experienced by our members involve a dispute with some sort of supervisor or administrator. Do you really want to be calling the same organization as your administrator for help? Only TCTA limits eligibility for membership to instructional staff and related personnel to prevent these conflicts.
