Stronger United

The Hernando Classroom Teachers’ Association – your professional union – is Hernando County’s active advocate for teachers. For over forty years, we have stood and spoken for quality education and for serving and protecting your best interests. 

HCTA is a professional organization that brings together teachers so that our voices as education professionals can be heard and respected. When you join your colleagues in HCTA, you are supporting an organization that is working through the school system, the legislature, and the community, to build support for higher standards of conduct and achievement in our classrooms. You are also covering yourself with $1,000,000 in liability insurance and attorneys that will protect your teaching certificate should it be at risk if you are disciplined, or if students or colleagues make false accusations against you. 

HCTA elected leaders are in constant communication with district administrators, voicing the opinions and concerns of school employees and defending their rights, as professionals.

The strength of any union is its members.  If you are not yet a member, do not hesitate any longer. Join today!  We are stronger united!
