Recently, seven Life High School Waxahachie students competed in the Texas Association of Future Educators State competition. Four of those did well enough in competition to advance to the Educators Rising National Competition in Washington D.C.

Katie Chester and Aryiana Keathley produced a secondary bulletin board design that has allowed them to advance. Iman Stanmore will advance from the Impromptu Lesson Planning category and Amber Scott developed a CTE Lesson Plan that will have her traveling to D.C. for the national competition as well.

“We are stunned at the success of our students. This is our first year to establish a TAFE chapter and take students to competition,” says the Education and Training program teacher, Taylor Jasper. “To have seven students advance to state is quite an accomplishment, but to have four who will compete at the national level is truly remarkable! We are so proud of students’ goal-oriented focus,” boasts Jasper.

The Future Educators Rising National State Competition will be hosted June 24-27 in Washington D.C. At a time when teachers are needed more than ever, Life School is working hard to continue to produce quality educators for the next generation.
