What is an Aspiring Educator?
Any college student pursuing a career in education, that doesn't already fit into one of our other membership categories, is an Aspiring Educator. They are the future of our profession, and it is vital that we not only support them on their journey, but also uplift their voices in decision-making and empower them.
How do we support you?
As an Aspiring Educator, we provide you with professional development, scholarships, conferences and networking opportunities, as well as membership in the Georgia Association of Educators and National Education Association. This provides you with the benefit of Liability Insurance for your practicum and observations for free!
How do we empower you?
By belonging to the Aspiring Educators, you are a part of a local, state, and national association that advocates for public education! They are the largest democratic bodies that regularly organize and represent public educators across the state and country, and they want and need your voice! As GAE advocates for Public Educators across the state of Georgia, ensuring we have the voice of future educators in the state is vital. We have local chapters at each of the colleges and school districts, as well as state and national positions for Aspiring Educators to get involved with and advocating for the profession that they want to see.
