Shakopee Education Association is a union and professional association of over 600 teaching and learning professionals working together to bring a world-class education to the students in the Shakopee Public Schools (MN ISD 720 - http://www.shakopee.k12.mn.us/).

In 2009, the SEA  celebrated its 50th year as a member of the American Federation of Teachers and took that opportunity to articulate the values our organization espouses:

Professionalism | Fulfilling our responsibilities through thoughtful planning, effective practice, self-reflection, and hard work (This is the foundation for each of the other values)

Advocacy | Protecting our established rights and promoting our appropriate interests

Problem-Solving | Being proactive, keeping the big picture in mind

Unity | Promoting the welfare of the group while respecting sub-group and individual concerns, as well as working constructively with District Administration

Equality | Striving for fairness while allowing for flexibility across job assignments, buildings, and levels
