Educators Rising Wisconsin

Inspiring young people to pursue a teaching career.

Teaching makes all other careers possible. Educators Rising Wisconsin is a 501 (c) 3 network of students, teachers, and education leaders aiming to inform and inspire young people to pursue a career in education. Educators Rising Wisconsin allows students in grades 9-12 to explore careers in education, an important step in preparing quality teachers for tomorrow’s schools. Phi Delta Kappa is the national sponsor of Educators Rising, and The Wisconsin Education Association Council is the state program coordinator. We invite you to learn more and consider hosting a chapter of students who want to serve their communities as future educators.
