Idaho schools face unprecedented challenges, yet many young Idahoans still want to teach. About 20 IEA student members from around the state met in Boise September 10-12 to learn more about the profession, to network with one another, and share ideas. As you can see from this photo, they enjoyed some light moments, too!
In this video, five student IEA members tell why they plan to become teachers. And in this recent story from the Idaho Statesman, past IEA student chair Victoria Finney explains that although she is still searching for work, she isn't losing hope. “I was born to be a teacher,” she told reporter Kristin Rodine.
