New Teachers

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Modesto Teachers Association held a dinner filled with raffle prizes, great food, and passionate teachers at Papapolloni Mediterranean Bistro to welcome new teachers into the profession.

Our Local Union

Over the years, Modesto Teachers Association has provided a forum to consider a tentative agreement (Collective Bargaining Agreement), which is driven by active members’ input and negotiated by the Bargaining Team.

The Modesto Teachers’ Association exists to protect and promote an environment, which entrusts our members to improve our pedagogical craft; to advance the growth and success for all students; to ensure competitive compensation, fair working conditions, and reasonable workload; and to secure the highest quality public education available for our student population.
