Ever wondered what it really takes to be a great teacher?
Three weeks this summer can answer your questions.
The Academy for Future Teachers (AFT’21) from Georgia State invites Atlanta’s bright, talented and diverse high school students to explore a career teaching math or science — virtually. STEM-focused students are also a great fit.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily for three weeks, high school participants will connect to build teaching and communication skills. Applying STEM concepts, small teams dig deep into current, real-world challenges and then devise engaging ways to teach the answers they uncover. AFT spotlights the professional and academic skills educators need — practical skills every student and future STEM leader can use.
The future of teaching & learning is hybrid.
To ensure safety, AFT’21 will be virtual. This is a plus because the teachers and leaders in the 21st century must navigate and flourish working both face-to-face and online. Come explore the possibilities!
Join us! If you are now completing your sophomore or junior year, we want to welcome you. If you are an academically strong freshman or a recent graduate who is considering teaching or having a STEM career, apply today.
