Educators Rising is a career and technical education (CTE) movement that aims to inspire high school and college students to serve their communities by entering the field of education. By establishing a pathway starting in high school, Educators Rising assists districts in cultivating their own next generation of highly skilled educators through a “grow your own” initiative. In addition, Educators Rising strives to diversify the educator workforce as future educators explore the necessary skills to teach equitably and add student voice to national discussions around education.
Did you know that 60% of educators live within 20 miles of where they went to school? Well, that is what we want here at AHS! Educators Rising is a great path for future teachers to get hands-on experiences, experience meaningful learning as well as get outside of their comfort zones!
