Student Teachers

We warmly welcome "student teachers" and look forward to working/learning together! Our chapter desires to mentor and help support new/young teachers in the area. You are welcome to visit us at our chapter meetings or various events if you'd like to get to know us better before making a decision to join. Questions? Just ask! We look forward to the possibility of working together.
