    • Springfield Public Schools (SPS) will be hosting a Future Educator, Meet and Greet Informational Session, next Thursday, May 13th from 4:30pm – 5:30pm. The SPS Future Educator Program is a district-wide initiative and component of Focus Area V that identifies underrepresented and under-resourced students at the High School and College level who will become the future educators of tomorrow. This program will consist of two pathways that will support students during their journey to becoming educational professionals. The goals of the Future Educator program are to: · Develop and support racially and culturally diverse students who have identified a passion for the education profession. · To increase the number of teachers within SPS, who reflect the racial and cultural diversity of the student body. · Create a new generation of SPS educators who are culturally conscious, global citizens committed to fostering an inclusive, equitable and affirming learning environment. · Retain and support racially and culturally diverse SPS educators. We would like to invite you and any student(s) you are aware of that would be interested in the Future Educator Program to attend our Meet and Greet Informational Session, next Thursday, May 13th from 4:30pm – 5:30pm at the Kraft Administrative Center (1359 E St Louis St, Springfield, MO 65802).
