About the Future Educators Association

The Future Educators Association was created when a group of transfer students in a Liberal Studies 300 class were seeking information regarding the credential programs offered at CSUSM and the overall process of becoming a Teacher. The idea of creating a club where future educators could meet up, ask questions, and connect with faculty and advisors evolved out of several in class discussions and by the end of the semester the foundations of the club were set and spearheaded by Makenzie Dotinga and Marissa Lamonte. Since the club's humble beginnings in Fall 2018, the Future Educators Association has grown to over 200 members and has organized several events from fundraisers to discussion panels featuring guests from the School of Education as well as Credential Advisors.
