CAPS Teacher Ed excel at Educators Rising

The conference was opened by student officers including CAPS representatives Taylor Faikner, Megan Andrievk, and Emma Hines. Students attended sessions of their choice throughout the day. CAPS Teacher Ed students presented a concurrent session and participated in education-related competitions.

  • Impromptu Speaking – Hanna Patterson – 1st place, Sal Norris – 3rd place
  • Ethical Dilemma – Jada Harper – 2nd place
  • Ted Talk – Jacqueline Keith – 3rd place

First and second place winners will advance to the State Educators Rising Conference in February.
