The Springfield Public Schools will host a “Future Educator Meet and Greet Informational Session” on Thursday, May 13th.
The event runs from 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Kraft Administrative Center on St. Louis Street.
The SPS Future Educator Program is a district-wide initiative that identifies underrepresented and under-resourced students at the high school and college level who will become the future educators of tomorrow.
A news release states the program will consist of two pathways that will support students during their journey to becoming educational professionals.
The goals of the Future Educator Program are to develop and support racially and culturally diverse students who have identified a passion for the education profession, increase the number of teachers within SPS who reflect the racial and cultural diversity of the student body, create a new generation of SPS educators who are culturally conscious, global citizens committed to fostering an inclusive, equitable and affirming learning environment, and retain and support racially and culturally diverse SPS educators.
Any students interested in the program are encouraged to attend Thursday’s session.
