The Colorado Education Association (CEA) was founded in 1875 by a handful of educators who came together, voted, and formed the first union for public education workers in Colorado. Today, CEA is the voice of 39,000 educators, working together to ensure all students get the exceptional public schools they deserve in every neighborhood across the state.
As Colorado’s largest labor union, CEA represents licensed teachers, higher education faculty, retired educators, students working toward becoming educators, education support professionals like paraprofessionals, bus drivers, food service workers, and others all across the state.
CEA works collectively with all education stakeholders—parents, students, principals, school boards, elected officials and others—to ensure that our students, educators and schools have the resources they need to learn and thrive.
CEA is led by President Amie Baca-Oehlert, a high school counselor from the Adams 12 school district, Vice President Kevin Vick, a high school social studies teacher from Colorado Springs and Secretary-Treasurer Amber Wilson, a high school English teacher from Denver.
