High school seniors from across Missouri signed letters of intent to become educators at the Future Teachers of America meeting hosted by the Missouri State Teachers Association in Columbia last Wednesday, prior to the Statewide FTA Meeting on the first day of MSTA’s Annual Convention and Assembly of Delegates.

The letters of intent recognize the commitment by these students to become the next generation of teachers in Missouri, and emphasize the impact educators make on their students, their communities and beyond.

More than 400 students from 32 schools across the state attended the meeting. Check out some of the photos below and download full size images here. Download a press release template to contact local publications regarding this announcement.
