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.

FEA Leadership: Janet Piedra, Lina Phung & Alexis Martinez

Janet smiling
 Janet Piedras  is going to be a senior at CSUSM. She is majoring in Liberal Studies with a depth of study in Linguistics. She is minoring in Linguistics and Education Studies. Janet wants to become a teacher because she has enjoyed her years as a student, and wants to be able to provide similar positive learning experiences. Her goal is to plant seeds of inspiration, and academic motivation to her students. However, while working with AVID students, she realized that sometimes students are the ones who inspire teachers. Janet has been part of the Future Educators Association since its origin in 2018, and is excited to take on the role of co-president along with Lina! She is excited for the enriching meetings Future Educators Association will offer this year, and being able to help students with their questions, and concerns!

Besides being Co-President of FEA, she is also a member of San Diego County's LiveWellYouth Team, an intern at the Child Welfar Services, and an AVID tutor at Carmel Valley Middle School. Lina has been a part of the Future Educators Association Leadership team since she was a Freshman and is happy to see how well it has continued to grow over the years. She is excited to continue her presidency with Janet and is willing to help with any questions or needs from fellow classmates. Lina hopes that this club will continue to be an exciting and supportive community for future educators so that everyone is well prepared and excited to go into the real world of teaching.

Alexis Martinez is going to be a Senior at CSUSM who is majoring in Liberal Studies with a depth of study in Linguistics. She is also minoring in Linguistics and Education Studies and is grateful for all the new advice and knowledge gained from the courses.

She has also been a part of the Future Educators Association (FEA) since its beginning, Fall 2018, her Freshman year, and is happy to see how much it has developed since then. Alexis is really excited for the upcoming school year and helping guide others who share a similar goal, to work in the field of education!
