It’s our mission to ensure educators have a seat at the table when education policies are made.


The United Education Association organizes educators, parents and the community to take an active role in creating the schools students deserve.

UEA is the new local education association in Shelby County affiliated with the Tennessee Education Association (TEA) and the National Education Association (NEA) with over 3.1 million members.

UEA is a member-driven professional organization advocating to maintain the rights of members to belong to an association that provides representation and benefits.

Being an educator isn’t a job, it’s a calling. It’s also personally rewarding and professionally demanding.

That’s why the UEA strives to provide you with the support you need to be great at what you do.
