North Carolina's educators not only help children read, write, and achieve academically, they teach them the skills they will need to be successful and productive citizens. The role of classroom teachers in our society could not be more crucial: Every job, invention, and advancement is made possible by the work our nation's teachers do.

NCAE supports classroom teachers by helping them advocate for safe working conditions, reasonable pay, professional development resources, and so much more. We help teachers understand the unique challenges of today’s classrooms and develop groundbreaking solutions to strengthen public schools.

When educators succeed, students succeed. 


We need and deserve fair salaries and benefits. We need and deserve workplaces that respect who we are and what we bring to our students. We need and deserve the right to demand change. Let’s redefine the workplace—together.


We believe that every educator is a learner. That’s why NCAE is proud to bring you the best from our educator-leaders: so you have a reliable resource for your pedagogy and practice challenges


Every student deserves a safe, welcoming, affirming learning environment. We provide the tools for educators to make it happen


We provide cutting-edge resources from state and national experts–our staff, leaders, and members–on the skills and topics educators need to join, stay in, and advance our profession


Ready to take the next step in your career? Start with our leadership resources for the knowledge and skills you need to be an effective leader at the local, state, and national stage.
