Student FEA’s 2019-20 theme: We the Aspiring Educators . . .

Teaching requires so much more than academics – providing hope, nurturing creativity and curiosity, and helping each individual student become the best possible version of themselves. With this in mind, we will continue and expand our commitment to getting books in the hands who need them through stocking our Little Free Libraries as well as sharing our First Book bank that we were awarded last year.

We are also planning to host a “Want to Be City” for our outreach project during our annual state conference. This project exposes students — we’re targeting fifth- to ninth-graders — to a variety of careers. We believe this is one way of giving hope, broadening their experiences and bringing the joy of learning into their homes and communities!
