A new student organization launched this semester dedicated to future teachers. 

Jags TEACH supports future teachers, ensuring they have the tools and strategies they need as they transition from education majors to educators.

Since the organization is new, the structure is still being formed. However, there will be monthly meetings and volunteer opportunities. There is also talk about a style of mentorship, similar to big brother-big sister, with professors in the college of education.

Although the organization started this semester, the number of members is at 32 and growing.

“We just hope it grows more throughout the semester,” said Victoria Lopez, interdisciplinary studies junior and vice president of Jags Teach Student Organization.

There will be a dinner ceremony at the end of the semester for members to reflect on accomplishments and recognize graduates. Members who successfully complete the education curriculum will earn a Jags TEACH graduation stole to wear with their cap and gown.

Membership is open to all education majors. Those interested in joining the organization can log in to JagSync, search for and select Jags TEACH under organizations and press the “join” button.

The organization will be primarily funded by membership dues of $10 per semester. Fundraising events will also take place throughout the semester. The goal of these events is to raise awareness, money and recruitment.

Jags TEACH will sell small conchas during its last fundraiser of the semester at Lights of Esperanza 6-8 p.m. Nov. 29 in the courtyard of the Central Academic Building.
