There's power in teaching.

University of Wyoming Trustees Education Initiative (TEI) sponsors and facilitates Educators Rising® Wyoming and Educators Rising® chapters in schools statewide.TEI values these important partnerships to cultivate future highly skilled educators for our state.

The Educators Rising® vision is that every teacher in America has the skills and experience to help all students achieve their potential. Its mission is to cultivate highly skilled educators by guiding young people on a path to becoming accomplished teachers, beginning in high school and extending through college and into the profession.

Educators Rising® provides students with authentic opportunities to experience teaching and build the skills they need to be successful educators. As a permanent member of the National Coordinating Council of Career and Technical Student Organizations, Educators Rising® offers resources and opportunities that integrate directly into the academic programs of “teacher academy” career and technical education courses at the high-school level.

By joining Educators Rising®, those leading or participating in school-based programs that help young people explore teaching are connected to more than 45,000 members across the country. This network includes more than 42,000 rising educators, and 25 states and regions have become official Educators Rising affiliates.

These aspiring educators and their mentors connect and deepen their learning through the EdRising Virtual Campus, a cutting-edge online community that offers rigorous resources to support the development of great teachers. Our many opportunities for students and teachers range from national competitions that allow rising educators to demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and leadership in education to a customizable curriculum that fits any teacher leader’s needs.

Member Competitions

Each spring high school students will compete in an Educators Rising Wyoming State statewide competition. State winners then move on to Educators Rising national competitions, which are performance-based competitive events in which teenage, aspiring teachers demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and leadership in education. With a blend of individual and team events, competitions are authentic, engaging opportunities for rising educators to stretch their creativity, commitment, and professionalism.

Forming Local Chapters

TEI seeks to support Wyoming school district chapters of Educators Rising® by funding a stipend for each local chapter advisor, and providing the fees for student member access to the EdRising Academy Curriculum, and Educators Rising® Microcredentials.
