Future Educators Advance to National Competition

Four Mansfield ISD students who are interested in becoming educators will have the opportunity to compete against other future educators around the country.

The high school students are members of the Texas Association of Future Educators (TAFE), an organization created to give students an opportunity to explore the teaching profession.

TAFE holds an annual conference to allow like-minded youth from across the state to network and engage in friendly competition.

More than 2,400 students and teachers were in attendance at this year’s two-day state summit in McAllen to compete in various education-related events. Attendees at the state conference represented over 225 high schools from all areas of Texas.

Congratulations to the following MISD students who excelled in their category and qualified for the national contest:

  • Emily Hernandez, Mansfield High School - Children’s Literacy (K-3)
  • Emily Willingham, Mansfield High School - Children’s Literacy (K-3)
  • Rianne Albatayneh, Summit High School - STEM Lesson Plan and Delivery
  • Brenna Franklin, Legacy High School - Educators Rising Moment

The national conference takes place in Washington, D.C. from June 17 through June 20. At the conference, students will compete for national titles in 21 competitive events designed to highlight their teaching skills.
