Ever wondered what it really takes to be a great teacher?
15 mornings this June can answer your questions.
The Academy for Future Teachers (AFT’20) at Georgia State welcomes bright, talented and diverse high school students seriously considering a career teaching math or science in an urban environment, and students on a STEM career track.
For three weeks in June, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., 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 — they teach real students every week! Real middle school and pre-K students give you essential real-world feedback that helps AFT’s future educators spotlight the professional and academic skills they need while deciding what goals are right for them.
AFT ’20 is designed for bright, talented students who have completed their sophomore or junior year by May, 2020. Academically strong or teacher career track freshmen and college-bound seniors are encouraged to apply too.
