Candidate for SVEA President
Catie Kruger

Hello All! I am Catie Kruger and I am a aspiring English educator at Old Dominion University. I have served on the SVEA Board of Directors for three years as the Underclassman Member at Large, Vice President and President. During my time in SVEA, I have attended the NEA Student Leadership Conference twice, the NEA Representative Assembly once, the NEA Minority and Women Leadership Training conference, as well as numerous amazing events at the state and local levels. Last year I served as a judge at the Educators Rising Conference and will be returning this year. This year at Old Dominion I also serve as the Grant Coordinator and worked hard to receive a NEA CREATE grant for a Read Across America Event. Prior to ODU. These amazing opportunities have been awarded to me due to SVEA and I hope to bring more opportunities to you across the state. My goal is to be as accessible to each of you as possible as we learn and grow together. As aspiring educators, we are at the forefront of issues in Education and people want to hear our voice. If elected my goal is to increase the dialogue from the state level to the local level as well as increase conversations from chapter to chapter. I would love to talk with you and share ideas on what you need from your association because I know that together we can make a difference. That is why I humbly ask for your vote for re-election this March. 



Candidate for SVEA Vice-President
Morgan Brown

Hello SVEA members, my name is Morgan Brown.  I am running for the position of Vice President.  I am a senior at Old Dominion University from the Richmond area and my major is Elementary Education. Being a student member of the Student Virginia Education Association for the past two years has been very rewarding and I have loved every minute of it! As a SVEA member, I have been active on the local, state, and national levels. Currently, I am on the SVEA Board of Directors as the Eastern Region Representative. Also, to my credit, I have served as Treasurer of the ODU SVEA Chapter. Presently, I am the Vice President of the ODU chapter. While at ODU, I have planned many activities that help shape our members become the best educators as possible. On the state level, I am the student representative on the Communication Committee and attended Lobby Day in Richmond, VA. This past summer I was fortunate enough to attend the Student Leadership Conference in Boston, MA. This conference awarded me the opportunity to form relationships with not only student members from across the country, but with VEA and NEA members. It is my goal to continue to represent SVEA well wherever it leads me and make certain our voices are heard.

Welcome Future Teachers

The teachers of Virginia, members of the Virginia Education Association, are eager to welcome you to the profession. We know that you are working hard to complete your degree, and we want to help.

That's why we support the Student Virginia Education Association (SVEA), a pre-professional organization that will guide you into our challenging world of teaching.

Joining Student VEA opens doors to you with our local associations in every school division in Virginia. Those local associations are professional communities that will give you support and guidance during your student teaching. And when you land your first teaching job, VEA's local associations will help you throughout your career -- especially during your early years as a new teacher.

Who is eligible to join?

Student membership is available if you are enrolled in a post-secondary program that is preparatory for employment in a position that will make you eligible for Active (teacher) membership in the VEA-NEA. Student membership is available to those who are NOT currently under contract with a school division in Virginia.

Why should I join?

As a student member of VEA-NEA, you'll have the nation's largest education association (3.2 million members) working to provide you with tools and resources for a successful career.

How much does it cost to join?

Annual dues are $30, plus your local chapter dues. Why so low? Because VEA-NEA members supplement the cost of the program to help you along your path to teaching.

I don't live in the same state as my college/university. Which state should I join?

You join the state where you are enrolled as a college student (i.e., if you live in West Virginia, but attend school in Virginia, you become a Virginia member).

Am I covered by liability insurance as soon as I sign up online?

Yes! Coverage is immediate.

How do I join?

Check with your local chapter president for a membership form, or click here to join online.
