I first got involved with IEA as a Student Teacher and have had so many opportunities to grow as a teacher and a leader. Through free events and conferences like SPARKS and Summer Institute I have had the ability to network with and learn from hundreds of educators across the state!
Early career educators are those just getting started as professional educators—typically through their first six years on the job. IEA members run the gamut from student members to veteran members with many years of experience, and they all recognize the importance of support, training, collaboration, and mentorship. We have many programs and resources designed to help early career educators find answers to questions, avoid missteps, and build confidence in their abilities. With the help of the IEA, you’ll never doubt that you belong!
