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.
PEN believes that teachers are professionals and deserve to be treated as such. PEN is NOT a labor union. We are a professional organization for the professional educator. PEN provides online professional development, so you can continue growing and learning in your career. PEN members are the best of the best. PEN promises to treat our members with the respect they deserve and advocate for that same respect around the state of Florida. PEN’s mission is to make Florida a better place for teachers to teach and students to learn.
