Aspiring educators at the University of Idaho signed IEA’s member roster last week during an on-campus IEA event in Moscow.
Caitlin Vasko, a political organizer with the IEA, and Lewiston-area IEA members Emmet Dougherty and Lindsey Smith spoke with education students in their 300-level special education class and university faculty. Students were asked to fill out a survey that will inform IEA’s burgeoning campaign to engage aspiring educators, which is spearheaded by Vasko.
Thirty-four new aspiring educator applications were brought back to Boise to be processed.
“This is an excellent first step to bolstering aspiring educator participation within the IEA,” Vasko said.
