Nearly two million new educators will enter the education profession over the next five years. The National Education Association (NEA) and ISTA are committed to welcoming and supporting new educators to ensure their success in the classroom and in their careers.

ISTA knows that first year and early career educators need help with filling their classrooms with school supplies. ISTA launched ReSupply, which accepts new and used donated school supplies to outfit the classrooms of new and early career educators.
