Who We Are

Achieving Excellence In Education

Wyoming Education Association (WEA) members work in Wyoming’s schools, colleges, and the university to help improve public education and the lives of Wyoming’s students. WEA members–more than 6,300 strong–provide a wide range of professional education services in communities throughout the state.

Our members teach in kindergarten classrooms, high school labs and university halls. We counsel adolescents and help students carve out career aspirations. We coach athletes and transport students to and from the schools and extra-curricular events. We provide professional services to benefit students, schools and the public in virtually every position needed to run Wyoming’s schools.

WEA members are dedicated to children and public education. Since 1892, the WEA has been working to make schools better and improve public education. Our association is dedicated to working in partnership with parents, community leaders and elected officials to help Wyoming’s students and improve public education.

The purpose of the Wyoming EA is to promote the cause of public education and improve the quality of teaching and learning. Through our more than 100-year history, WEA members have been involved in every struggle and effort to advance the finest of America’s dreams: universal, free, equitable and high-quality public education for every child.

We are the WEA. When you stand with us, you stand for students.

Joining WEA is good for you personally and professionally … and it’s good for students.

As your professional organization, we are like a family, a union of professionals who agree that students and education are important — and that the people who are working in schools are important, too.

As skilled and caring professionals, we help you build relationships with colleagues across the state and nation. We are 6,000 members strong in Wyoming and 3 million members strong across the country. There is a WEA member in virtually every school building across the state ready and willing to help you and your students succeed.

We are the favorite teachers from your school days. We are your friends, your colleagues and your mentors. We are united in our belief in, and support for, public schools and the teaching profession. We know that it is part of our professional responsibility to unite together for the good of our students and for our profession.

We are a volunteer organization supported by our members’ dues, grants from the National Education Association and the good work of our members. Regardless of job classification, we are all educators.

Everything we do centers around WEA’s priorities of promoting quality public schools, strengthening the teaching profession and improving the well being of members.

“Everything” we do includes:

  • Maximizing learning opportunities for you and your students,
  • Working to enhance your career,
  • Lobbying the Legislature, and protecting your right to practice in your chosen profession.
