“ 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.”
Education Rising is a club made for the future educators of New Mexico. You do not have to be in the education pathway to be involved in the club, anyone is welcome! In Educators Rising you get to see what it is like being a teacher first hand. Most people who take the education classes start with child development, pre-teaching one and two, and then you go out into the schools of the community to become a teacher’s helper. There are also competitions for this club such as a statewide conference where you put your skills to the test. You can compete in things such as lesson planning, writing children's books, or do a “ted talk”. Educators Rising is a place to experience what it is like to run a classroom. The students who participate all can agree that it is an interesting learning opportunity and a good way to know if Teaching is the right field for you!
