AACTE’s 75 Days | 75 Ways Campaign Offers Innovative Ways to Support Educators and Educator Prep in the New Year
AACTE continues its 75 Days | 75 Ways to Advocate for Education campaign launched in December, a celebration of AACTE members taking a leading role in advancing educator preparation for 75 years.
Recent tips encourage education leaders to consider how to make positive changes in the profession.
“My advice to all educators is to find your way from isolation to collaboration and flexibility by creating teams of teachers with distributed expertise,” said Arizona State University Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College Dean Carole Basile, Ed.D.
“Advocacy for all in education begins with knowing that equity is not a program; equity is a value,” said Doane University Professor Teresa Perkins, Ed.D. “Does the staff/faculty represent the students and community being served?”
“Find out what is happening in your school district by reviewing the board agenda online and then attending—and even speaking—at the district’s board meeting,” said former high school teacher Brooke Evans.
“In addition to attending AACTE’s Annual Meeting and remaining engaged as a member, teacher educators should get involved with their state’s chapter of AACTE,” said Berea College Professor Nicholas D. Hartlep, Ph.D.
Leading up to the AACTE Annual Meeting kickoff on Feb. 24, 2023, AACTE will share tips daily from its members to show support for educators and educator preparation through its social media platforms and on the website at aacte.org/policy-and-advocacy/75-days-75-ways.
Watch the latest video to hear from AACTE Board of Directors Chair-Elect Monika Williams Shealey, Ph.D.
