The state officer team is expected to plan and run the state conference. They will also have the opportunity to greet and welcome chapters to the learning expo events as well as take part in training opportunities.
Educators Rising is a national network that provides passionate young people with opportunities to experience teaching, sustain their interest in the education profession, and help them cultivate their skills they need to be successful educators. While students are in high school, Educators Rising supports curricular programs where students explore the teaching profession and gain hands-on teaching experience. In college, the program supports campus-based student groups that promote the development of aspiring teachers.
The South Dakota Educators Rising chapter is in their third year of existence and has 17 schools from around the state participating. Those schools are De Smet, West Central, Madison, Harrisburg, Brandon Valley, Mobridge-Pollock, Tea Area, Brookings, Rapid City, Dell Rapids, Beresford, Yankton, Timber Lake, Milbank, Lakota Tech, Sioux Valley, and Aberdeen.
