PSEA is a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of students every day.
Emily Nell came back to teach art and make an impact after spending 14 years as an independent artist working in schools and holding benefit auctions.
Pennsylvania’s public schools should be the safest and healthiest places for students to learn and grow.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.

Mike Penn planted the PSEA flag at the South Pole. Then, he ventured to another location in Antarctica where no human being had ever gone.
All along he conducted interactive lessons with his fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade gifted students in the Shaler Area School District, Allegheny County, as well as students throughout the world.
Penn was one of 11 teachers selected this year to participate in PolarTREC, an organization funded by the National Science Foundation that partners teachers with academic researchers to improve science education. He and four other teachers were assigned to an automatic weather station team from the University of Wisconsin to travel to Antarctica – the others were assigned to the Arctic.

Tributes have been coming from many corners following the sudden and untimely passing of Dolores McCracken late last year.
But amid the accolades for the former PSEA president’s long and distinguished service – cards, emails, social media posts, and tearful speeches by former colleagues and friends – it is important to both look to the future and reflect on McCracken’s legacy.
Entries are now being accepted for The Jenifer J. DuBois Fabric of Unionism Art Competition, which is held every two years to promote awareness of the historical significance of the labor movement and its importance to the future.
The competition, featuring $1,000, $500, and $250 cash prizes, is judged by the PSEA Fine Arts Caucus. Entries must be postmarked by March 29.
