The Fresno Teachers Association exists to protect and promote the well-being of its members and to improve the conditions of teaching and learning in the city of Fresno. We are committed to advancing the cause of a quality public education that upholds the human dignity and worth of all children toward the end of building a more just, equitable, and democratic society. Our members know how to create conditions for student success in our schools. Too often, the education agenda in the city of Fresno is determined by those who do not interact with students and their families on a daily basis. The Fresno Teachers Association is committed to re-asserting the place of its members as the drivers of the teaching profession and as the true advocates for the interests of our students. As an association we commit to empower our members in this role by creating a culture of organizing, developing local leaders and engaging with community members and organizations.
