closely with teacher-leaders in schools across the state to support students exploring
teaching as a career path.
Educators Rising provides passionate young people with hands-on teaching experience,
sustains their interest in the profession, and helps them cultivate the skills they
need to be successful educators.
Educators Rising is for any student interested in teaching at the elementary, middle
or secondary level, coaching, being a principal, or working in post-secondary education.
