31. Reversing the Teacher Shortage One Student at a Time

Plenty of students want to serve as educators. But they face challenges, not the least of which include negative reactions from their friends and family.

A Mauston teacher is working toward a solution. She's encouraging students to pursue education careers through Educators Rising, a national group that guides young people on a path from high school through college and into their teaching careers.

In this episode, we speak with Leah Luke, the Wisconsin coordinator for Educators Rising, and Erin, a recent Mauston graduate and Educators Rising member, about encouraging students to explore education careers. We’ll talk about the role of board members in helping solve the teacher shortage, as well as how to start an Educators Rising chapter in your district.

If you’d like to contact Leah Luke about starting an Educators Rising chapter, you can reach out to her at
