Why Join the Indiana State Teachers Association?

Because we’re here for you. It’s our mission to ensure educators have a seat at the table. We represent you at the bargaining table, we offer legal support and we’re the ones leading advocacy efforts to improve the lives of Indiana’s educators and students.

ISTA knows your needs. We know you need more resources for instruction and fair compensation. We know every student, support staff member and teacher needs schools they are proud of. We’re raising our voices together – along with millions of other educator voices across the country – to fight for what we know is best for our students, our schools and for ourselves as educators.
