The Jefferson Township Education Association (JTEA) is made up of professionals who hold a wide range of jobs with varying responsibilities. The single common thread which binds all of our members is their dedication to the children of the district. Every member does whatever is needed to help each child become the very best person her or she can be. Society currently has varying views on what the members of a school system actually do, but I say that if each student grows up and becomes a positive, contributing, and influential member in society, then we have done our jobs.
The Jefferson Township Education Association is a diverse, democratic, and inclusive organization working to create an optimal environment to achieve excellence in public education for the public Schools in Jefferson Township, NJ.
