MEA

The Mesquite Education Association began in 1958 when it formed under the name Mesquite Teachers Association. Dr. Ralph H. Poteet, who later became the Superintendent of Schools, served as the organization's second president during the 1960-61 school year. The name was changed to Mesquite Education Association in 1970.  

Through membership in MEA, employees have a voice concerning professional practices. They are also encouraged to participate actively in civic affairs. MEA members are represented by a body able to speak with authority for them in communicating with other Mesquite ISD entities as well as the community which they serve.

MEA membership benefits include collaboration, professionalism, scholarships, discounts, life insurance, and other continually improving benefits.
