The Oregon Professional Teachers Association (OPTA) is a nonunion, nonpartisan professional association for public, charter and private school employees. Almost all educators statewide can join as long as the person is a W-2 employee of a school or school district.

Organized by a former public school teacher who saw a need for educators in Oregon to have options. OPTA, LLC, is a limited liability company that administers OPTA member benefit services and programs. Through the LLC, members of OPTA have access to professional liability insurance and professional rights protection. 

Based in Corvallis, Oregon, OPTA headquarters is located at 257 SW Madison Ave., Suite 210, in an office near the Willamette River. Email us at or call (541)207-5059.

I have been a middle school and high school teacher in four schools across two states teaching mainly math as well as several years of American history. I am excited about supporting public and private school teachers across Oregon. Call me if you have any questions about membership at (541)207-5059. 

Our Vision: Improve the quality of life for teachers and students.

Our Mission: Provide Oregon educators with affordable career support that gives members the peace of mind needed to inspire student success.
