“I received a letter of discipline based on an unfounded anonymous complaint. My union went to bat for me to get it removed."


“My administrator was not providing me coverage for lunch breaks and my time was repeatedly cut short. PEA got involved, fixed the issue, and got me back pay for the time I worked through."


“Thank you PEA for offering valuable professional development!  With the help of their review course, I was able to pass my Reading K-12 Exam and earn my endorsement.”
