Educators Rising Students attend National Conference
Shadow Ridge High School Educators Rising students Halle Feltner and Rhys Davis recently participated in the Educators Rising National Leadership Conference held June 20-24 in Washington, DC.
Each student qualified to attend the National Conference after competing at the State Leadership Conference held in Tucson this past spring. Halle Feltner placed second in STEM Lesson Planning and Delivery in which she designed, taught to third graders, and reflected on with the judging panel.
“The National Educators Rising Conference was a great opportunity for students to compete with others from across the Nation,” said Andrea Haser, Shadow Ridge Educators Rising advisor. “They also connected with future educators and listened to great speakers at opening/closing and breakout sessions. The location of the conference in Washington D.C. also offered additional learning experiences as we toured parts of the nation's capital city.”
