The SDEA Aspiring Educators will address the needs of today's diverse student population in order to facilitate student achievement by preparing pre-professional educators with ideals of professional ethics and standards.
The Student Program strives to:
- Promote community partnerships
- Foster leadership through pre-professional opportunities and peer mentoring
- Promote membership among diverse populations
- Provide networking opportunities
- Supplement formal teacher-education training
- Promote the national accreditation of teacher-education training
- Recruit and retain pre-professional members
- Maintain a presence at all NEA conference
The NEA Student Program is Essential. Nearly 2 million teachers across the country retired last year. We must take aggressive steps to replace these educators and ensure a quality teacher in every classroom. NEA supports teachers who are well qualified and prepared for their careers.
