The past several months have gone by in a blur for the world as rushed plans were created in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. There were many questions that surrounded education.
Now in its third year, the University of Central Florida (UCF) Consortium for Future Educators is growing by leaps and bounds!
Florida needs new teachers. According to the Florida Department of Education, critical teacher shortage areas for the 2019-20 school year include science, language arts, mathematics, reading and several other subjects.
Teacher education students recently presented professional strategies and techniques to their peers and heard from veteran teachers about student engagement at the KnightED Talks Student Showcase hosted by the School of Teacher Education . The showcase provides an opportunity for students to present at a conference prior to graduation and learn from their UCF teacher-candidate peers. High school students participating in teaching academies in their districts also joined the showcase this year for the first time.
