The Project Launch: Future Educators Academy
“I wanted to thank you again for giving me the privilege of attending Teacher Camp. I learned so much! Thank you!! I learned things that I know I will be using in my class to come.” -Annie Christiansen, Future Kindergarten Teacher
In an ongoing effort to bridge students from high school to the point of application to the Teacher Education Program, the Jerry & Vickie Moyes College of Education at Weber State University offers the Project Launch: Future Educators Academy. This is an on-campus experience that will help students who are entering the Moyes College of Education. The students will take part in innovative workshops and activities.
The Project Launch grew out of the goal put forth by the Moyes College of Education and local area school districts to combat future teacher shortages by creating a teacher pipeline program to cultivate highly effective future educators.
Most of the students who participate in Project Launch come from the “Teachers of Tomorrow” program; which is a combination of the Concurrent Enrollment class EDUC 1010 “Exploring Teaching” class, and participation in the Future Educators Association.
