Established in 1992, The WEA Academy is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation providing educators with quality, needs-based professional development. Courses are effective tools for teachers because they are created by teachers. Teachers design our courses to accelerate professional growth through online collaboration with both the instructor and colleagues on today’s relevant topics. Courses emphasize practical application to the daily work of teachers and paraeducators.
