California Future Educators Association


Learning Today, Teaching Tomorrow

Our Mission

MISSION
Our mission as the California affiliate for F.E.A. is to encourage students to learn about careers in education and aid them in exploring teaching while providing meaningful opportunities to receive the mentoring and support they need to actualize their career aspirations. California FEA was founded in 2011 so that students across California would have the opportunity:

  1. To learn about the teaching profession, its opportunities and responsibilities
  2. To explore their interests and abilities in relation to the various fields of teaching
  3. To cultivate the qualities of character, service and leadership which are essential in good teachers
  4. To learn how and where teachers receive their training, the cost, scholarships available, number of years required, certification requirements and standards
  5. To study the lives and influence of great teachers

MOTTO
I will pursue excellence in preparing to be a future teacher in California.  I hold to the highest standard and ethics and will uphold the mission and responsibilities of the California FEA.  I will represent myself, my school and the California FEA with my best effort, attitude and commitment.
