Hello future educators! It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Texas State Teachers Association- Aspiring Educators Program. As aspiring eduators, it is our duty to work to be the best teachers we can be for our future classrooms, and I believe the TSTA-AE program is the perfect place to make that happen.
Here at TSTA-AE we have the opportunity to develop our leadership skills, receive professional development support, take part in political action and engage with our community in outreach projects. As a National Education Association (NEA) affiliate, TSTA-AE shares a corresponding vision, that every student will receive their education in a great public school. It is this vision that motivates members of TSTA-AE to advocate for public education to ensure that students and teachers have a voice.
As a TSTA-AE member, you are joining a group of educators, peers and mentors who all share the same goals and vision. You are a part of a family of allies who will support you and encourage you on your path to becoming a great educator. Join us as we stand together to provide every student with an opportunity to succeed. Together we can make a difference because we are the future of education.
