New and exciting things are about to happen with the New Jersey Future Educators Association (NJFEA)! Our mission is to become our nation’s leading state network that encourages and inspires today’s middle and high school students who are exploring or planning to become future teachers.
Beginning on July 1st, NJFEA will become an independent organization that will remain affiliated with the national Future Educators Association that will be called Educators Rising. Joining the NJFEA will include membership without charge in Educators Rising. NJFEA members will receive regular information about innovative programs offered by Educators Rising such as online videos, future teacher resources and online discussions, and micro-credentials/ achievement badges.
NJFEA membership for the 2015-16 school year is only $10 per person--a great value! This fee includes include priority registration at our statewide regional conferences and workshops, future teacher leadership programs and service projects, our bi-monthly newsletter, “The Smartboard,” chapter incentive grants and scholarships, urban-suburban student exchanges, our 2015-16 Handbook for Starting and Leading a NJFEA Chapter, and much more!
Because NJFEA is now an independent organization funded by the New Jersey Education Association, all past and future chapters need to register for membership. NJFEA membership and registration information can be accessed at https://www.thinkregistration.com/feaaff/nj/. Students can join as part of their NJFEA chapters or Tomorrow Teachers course electives. Individual student membership is also available by contacting Larry Fieber, NJFEA State Director, at email@example.com or at 609-771-2464.
If it is your dream to teach, or if you are interested in exploring what a career in teaching can offer you—and what you can offer it—you owe it to yourself to join the NJFEA. You will become a part of a strong and growing statewide network of your peers who have similar aspirations.
Through the NJFEA, you will also connect regionally and nationally with an expanded network of your peers to help you find your place and your voice as tomorrow’s teachers—tomorrow’s leaders!
Together, we will make the NJFEA a national model for developing and supporting young people who aspire to meet the challenge of a career in education. A teacher influences the course of history each time she or he touches the life of a student.
