ALASKA EDRISING STUDENTS PLACED IN MANY CATEGORIES AT NATIONALS
We had a small and mighty crew of Educators Rising Alaska competitors at Nationals in Washington, D.C., June 24-27, 2022. We are so impressed with the caliber of students we have participating in EdRising Alaska! Congratulations to everyone!
Torrey McClain, one of our 2021-22 Student Officers, has been elected as the National Student President of Educators Rising! We are so pleased for Torrey, as the first ever National Student Officer from Alaska!

WHAT IS EDUCATORS RISING?
Educators Rising is a diverse, teacher and student-led grassroots movement that aims to inspire high school and college students to serve their communities by entering the field of education. School-based chapters are located in every U.S. state, where students practice the necessary skills to lead a classroom while adding student voice to National discussions around education.
We aim to foster excellence within the state of Alaska by supporting middle school through collegiate level students on their path to become Alaskan educators. Our purpose is to inspire students from across the state, creating a scaffold on which rural and urban students can be encouraged, nurturing their enthusiasm to become future educators, administrators, counselors, aides, and supporting staff.
