Palmetto State Teachers Association was organized in 1976 as an alternative to the union, and has become the fastest growing teaching association in the state. PSTA is governed by a Board of Directors who volunteer their services. Officers and district directors are elected at the annual convention. They receive no pay or compensation. (Please read about our current board members here.)
Classroom teachers make up 90% of PSTA’s membership. The majority of PSTA’s staff members have also been classroom teachers at some point during their careers.
