SDEA is an organization of dedicated and talented individuals working to transform the teaching profession to meet the challenges of the 21st century student. Our goal is to ensure that every child has a qualified and caring teacher in the classroom. To that end, we are leading conversations on the best practices for quality teaching.
Whether it is helping teachers understand how to use Student Learning Objectives in their classrooms or developing the best assessments for students, SDEA will be there to provide resources and necessary professional development to help our members be successful in their classroom. We also offer summer workshops for continuing education units or graduate credit. Members also have access to the NEA Academy which is devoted to meeting the professional development needs of teachers.
