DSEA represents the over 12,000 classroom teachers, specialists, and education support professionals working in Delaware public schools. These individuals are dedicated to providing the best educational opportunities to the 130,000 Delaware students. DSEA members provide a wide range of services to the students and the communities they live in.
Our members teach students in classrooms from pre-k centers through high school. They counsel adolescents and help them build career aspirations. They deliver instructional assistance in every type of subject. They prepare and serve nutritionally-balanced meals. They provide needed transportation and ensure our schools and facilities are clean and safe. They supply the professional services which help our schools run efficiently.
DSEA members dedicate their lives to supporting children and public education. Since 1919, DSEA's mission has been to make our public schools a safe and vibrant atmosphere for educating students. We remain as dedicated now as when we started in 1919. This dedication will continue to drive us forward, forging important partnerships with parents, community leaders, and elected officials, all focused on the goal of providing Delaware children with the a world-class education.
More than just words, that is our mission. DSEA is the voice of education employees - in the General Assembly and the courts, in contract talks, and before school boards and state agencies. We will represent educators wherever people make decisions affecting school employees, our students, and their families.
