Ever wondered what it really takes to be a great teacher?
Check out the Academy for Future Teachers at Georgia State!
Watch here for future announcements coming in December about AFT’20
Are you a high school student willing to consider a career in education teaching math or science? Are you thinking about a math or science career? The Academy for Future Teachers could be your best step toward reaching your goals.
For three weeks this June, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Academy for Future Teachers (AFT) participants join students from all over Atlanta on Georgia State’s campus to enrich teaching and communication skills, participate in field trips and workshops and review core math and science content. Best of all, you’ll teach real middle and pre-kindergarten students each week. Your students provide essential, real-world feedback that helps you as one of AFT’s future educators spotlight the professional and academic skills you need while deciding what is right for them.
AFT is designed for students who have completed their sophomore or junior year each May, though academically strong or teacher career track sophomores and college-bound seniors are considered, as well.
