Hats off to our 2018 Nationals Team

Last year when I was given the opportunity to start the Future Educators Academy one of my goals was to provide students with the opportunity for leadership and to leave Olathe. I am a huge advocated in student leadership (I even got my master’s in it) and really feel that allowing student to lead give is the best way to learn. I knew I wanted to take students to Nationals, which is hosted by Educators Rising each summer. 

I wish I could capture the feeling of pride I had watching them present on the national stage not just once but twice. I still can’t believe what we accomplished in our inaugural year of the academy. The students practiced their presentations during school, after school, presented at the Olathe Public Schools Summer Conference for all faculty in the district and then on the National Stage. The sessions at Ed Rising Nationals are meant to be inspiring, educational and bring about changes to our education system and country. Our Sessions were 

  • Building Blocks of 
    Student Relationships
  • Building and Inclusive Classroom 

2018 National Teams, you have beating all my expectations, the odds and setting the bar incredibly high for all the future Nationals Trips!
