Tomorrow’s Teachers: Teenage, aspiring teachers show their knowledge, skills and leadership in education.

Andrea Robledo and Dolores EscotoFuture teachers Ashley Salmerón, Dolores Escoto and Andrea Robledo from Aldine ISD, will be traveling to Phoenix. They will compete in the Educators Rising national meet set for June 23-26.

The students are members of the Texas Association of Future Educators (TAFE). They advanced to nationals after emerging as champions in their respective events at the state competition.

Educators Rising national competitions are performance-based competitive events. Aspiring adolescent teachers show their knowledge, skills and leadership in education.

With a blend of individual and team events, competitions are authentic. They engage rising educators to stretch their creativity, commitment and professionalism.

Ashley SalmerónIn 2017, Educators Rising is offering 22 national competitions. Events include children’s literature, ethics, leadership, lesson planning and research learning challenges.

Most of the District’s high school campuses offer TAFE, which gives students a chance to explore teaching as a career. Each spring, the District hosts the TAFE Banquet to celebrate students pursuing the profession. The culminating event is the handing of letters of intent by the Human Resources Department.

Dr. Wanda Bamberg, superintendent of schools, hopes aspiring educators come back to teach in Aldine ISD.

“Once alumni receive their teaching degrees, I want them to consider Aldine,” said Bamberg. “They can help the children in their communities reach their highest potential.”

Congratulations and Good Luck!
