Caleb Langer – 1st grade in Brookings. It is my 1st year teaching. I joined at SDSU after my college professor asked me to join a group on a lobby day at the Capitol. It turns out she was the advisor for SDEA at the college level. I was also a state office as well. I saw the importance of education in a different setting. I then became a member as a 1st year teacher. The best part of being a member is the collaboration among other educators.
