Educators Rising - A Classroom is waiting…

(The following is from https://www.educatorsrising.org/           

         Educators Rising cultivates highly skilled educators by guiding young people on a path to becoming accomplished teachers, beginning in high school and extending through college and into the profession.

         Educators Rising is transforming how America develops aspiring teachers. Starting with high school students, we provide passionate young people with hands-on teaching experience, sustain their interest in the profession, and help them cultivate the skills they need to be successful educators. The result is a pipeline of accomplished teachers who are positioned to make a lasting difference — not only in the lives of their students, but also in the field of teaching more broadly.

         Educators Rising is a not for profit organization sponsored by Phi Delta Kappa International (PDK) that has continuously assisted students in exploring careers in education for many years.  Originally known as Future Teachers of America, this program was once sponsored by the National Education Association and then the Association of Teacher Educators.  During this time, it was renamed the Future Educators of America.  In 1994, sponsorship shifted to PDK International.  To more accurately reflect the international nature of the organization, PDK changed from Future Educators Association to Educators Rising in 2015.

          At the national level, Educators Rising supports the implementation of cocurricular high school programs in which students explore the teaching profession and gain authentic, hands-on teaching experience. Through the EdRising Virtual Campus, we provide teachers and school leaders with resources to establish and teach these courses — from implementation guidance to curricular materials. Teacher leaders facilitating the courses have access to a national network of counterparts, peers, and experts for sustained support.
