Welcome to the Portland Education Association.

The Portland Education Association has been representing educators professionally and through collective bargaining agreements since the early 1970s. The PEA represents the teachers (pre-k, k-12, vocational, and adult), social workers, librarians, nurses, school counselors, therapists (physical, occupational, and speech), psychological examiners, educational technicians, language facilitators who are committed to improving the academic achievement of the students of Portland Public Schools. The PEA is the largest local educator professional association in the state of Maine with well over 700 members. We have a long, strong history of membership advocacy, leadership on professional issues, and partnership with the school district in areas of educational reform. There are many ways to participate in the Portland Education Association. We invite you to join and become actively involved in your professional association!
