Welcome to the Metropolitan Nashville Education Association!
Who We Are
We are a local affiliate of the Tennessee Education Association and National Education Association. We primarily represent the certificated employees Metro Nashville Public Schools, including teachers, librarians, counselors, school social workers, school psychologists, and administrators, as well as central office staff and other groups.
How We Operate
We are the only local organization made up entirely of educators who advocate behalf of other educators. We are a completely democratic institution. Our officers and board members are elected directly by our membership, and our work directed by our representative assembly which is made up of our Association Representatives (better known as building reps) who meet monthly to deliberate actions. We are member-driven and dedicated to making a difference for our students, our profession, and our communities.
What We Do
MNEA's purpose is to advocate on behalf of educators and public schools in Nashville. We do this in three ways:
1. Direct member assistance and legal representation.
2. Negotiating and defending our Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
3. Educating and organizing our members to defend their rights and advance the
cause of public education at the local level.
Your UniServ Directors are your direct link to TEA. If you need direct member assistance or legal representation, contact your UniServ Director:
