The 7 person National’s team is bringing home a collection of historic firsts for not only 21st Century Academy Future Educators, Olathe East and Olathe Public Schools but Kansas Ed Rising as well:
- 1st Place in Choreography for the Lip Sync Competition
- Top 10 Inside Our Schools: Kayla Jones and Mihir Sarja
- Top 10 Exploring Administration Careers: Josh Chase
- Top 10 Exploring Non-Core Careers: Jenna Swisher
To say the students were #InItToWinIt is an understatement. With the help of the amazing chaperones, parent support and efforts over the last few months and lots of practice, these students have achieved amazing results! It is especially amazing to think because Future Ed is just two years old, and the students are only sophomores. Just think where they will be their senior year.
Our National Presentation: Relationship Building: The most important tool in an Educators Toolbox.
Students practiced, practiced and practiced some more to prepare to present on the National Stage. The entire 7 person team did an amazing job presenting in front of their peers and teacher leaders from around the world (yes, world, not just nation). Students looked professional and received many compliments on their 1/2 zips. They did an excellent job conveying the importance of relationship building in a teachers toolbox with a fun, engaging and packed session.
Congratulations to the Future Educators’ Nationals Team!
