Join 47,000 educators in Missouri’s oldest and largest professional teaching association.
MSTA membership never increases without member approval.
As an independent association, 100 percent of MSTA dues stay right here to support educators in Missouri. We focus on the issues that affect public education in the Show-Me State, nothing else.
MSTA dues don’t increase automatically every year. Increases must be approved by MSTA’s Assembly of Delegates. MSTA forwards money to local CTAs and regions. $18 is forwarded to local affiliates for each current professional member ($6 to local CTAs and $12 to MSTA regions).
