Professional Organizations for Teachers
“To belong or not to belong? That is the question.”
Numerous professions require individuals to engage in professional organization membership. It is not required in our field to become members of professional organizations. However, as an educator you might find it beneficial to glean from certain professional organizations. As a professional it is your duty to enhance your practice. For this assignment you will investigate professional organizations for teachers and identify three that would be related to your professional interest. (list is included) For each, give the following: 

History: When was it founded?
Purpose:  What is the organization committed to?
Publications: What are the publications this organization publishes?
Cost: Membership dues
What does membership in a professional organization do for teachers?
Do you think this organization would be worth becoming a member of?  Why or why not?

List of Organizations:  

New Mexico Association of Classroom Teachers
National Association of Special Education Teacher “NASET”
National Association for Bilingual Education “NABE”

 Make sure the organization is committed to “Teachers” not just a research outlet for assistant professors desperate for a publishing outlet!
