Founded in 1979, Mississippi Professional Educators is a statewide professional organization whose members come from all aspects of the educational systems in our state and is an alternative to union participation. Our 10,000 members include teachers, administrators and non-certified staff from kindergarten to graduate school level. Our top priority is the education and achievement of students, as the organization is guided by our eight principles of belief which were established when MPE was founded and these are still the foundation of the organization today. If you are not a member we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us as we grow and become an even stronger voice for professional educators in our state. Join MPE today!
As an educator you are also a consumer and should expect quality services at an affordable price. You deserve quality services at an affordable price. That's just one on the reasons you should become a member of the MPE family. MPE is the premier professional association in Mississippi because MPE offers a premium package of services and benefits for the best price. Our educators' professional liability insurance and employment rights protection are unmatched. Our member services and discounts will save you money, and our state office staff and resources will be there when you need them.
How is MPE different? MPE is a true professional association open to educators practicing in kindergarten through graduate schools, public or private, certified and classified staff. We believe education is a profession and oppose strike and work stoppages. We choose to collaborate, not separate a natural choice for a group that is member-owned and member driven.
