The US Department of Education anticipates that by 2018, our nation will need almost one million new teachers due to increasing student enrollments and retirement of today's baby boomers. Teacher shortages will be particularly acute in subjects such as math, science, special education, and ESL and for high poverty-hard-to staff schools. We also need to encourage greater diversity among our teaching force and more males, particularly at the elementary level. The Center for Future Educators/New Jersey Future Educators Association is working vigorously to answer the call by encouraging today's students who are exploring career opportunities as future teachers. Join us at our events and programs in 2014 to explore exciting opportunities for future teachers. Check back regularly for updated information under Mark Your Calendar and the Events menu above.
