PEN of Florida was formed from humble beginnings 25 years ago. A few parents, teachers, and education advocates wanted to see the culture of teaching change for Florida teachers. They had a vision for teachers to be treated as professionals. PEN has served thousands of teachers since its humble beginnings. We have provided employment rights protection and liability insurance to teachers in their most needed times. We have a heart for giving teachers the tools they need to be the best teachers they can be. We have given thousands of dollars in classroom supplies directly to teachers over the years. Our vision continues to grow. Grow with us by joining the professional organization for Florida teachers.

Focusing on Educators Instead of Agendas
PEN of Florida focuses on the classroom – not on the host of non-education, political issues and social agendas that teachers’ unions often pursue. These non-classroom issues involve partisan politics and are often matters of personal conscience and faith. They are also divisive and should have no part in a true professional association. PEN does not contribute any money to political parties or to candidates. PEN honors the reputation of its teachers by staying focused on education issues.
You Don’t Have to Pay a Ton of Money for Great Career Coverage
It’s true. PEN provides the best legal coverage at the most affordable price. For less than $20 a month, you have access to real education attorneys at the onset of any issues within the workplace.
