Educators in the classroom today are operating in an unpredictable and increasingly chaotic environment. Like all professionals, it is a good idea for teachers to protect themselves with liability coverage. If you are not a member of Education Minnesota, or are thinking of resigning from the union, there are associations designed just for teachers that offer liability coverage and other protections. You could also talk to your personal agent for home/auto insurance to see about adding on liability coverage.
