'Building a Foundation for the Future' is the theme for the Sixth Annual Emerging Educators Academy on Dec. 5.
Designed for preservice teachers up through third-year teachers and their mentors, the academy is hosted and run by Iowa's Outstanding Educators.
A day of interaction will focus upon elevating, inspiring and educating the new teachers. With a virtual format taking the place of the traditional face-to-face interactions, attendees will join via Zoom to engage in quality presentations from some of Iowa's finest educators.
This year's keynote will be delivered by Iowa's own Sarah Brown Wessling, the 2010 National Teacher of the Year. Breakout sessions will be presented by several of Iowa's award-winning educators, as well as a student panel.
The day aims to celebrate all that teachers do to support their students, their students' families and each other, and empower Iowa's newest educators to continue to make a difference to those in their lives.
