Affiliated with Liberal Studies and the School of Education.
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.
Caitlin Cantonwine is going to be a senior at CSUSM. She is a liberal studies major with a depth in
psychology, who plans on becoming an education specialist. She knew she wanted this
career because she loves it and has been volunteering in special education classrooms
for 7 years now! Some more about her is she loves anything to do with art, the beach,
getting food with friends, and she currently works for an after school program as
an art teacher and sports coach. Cait is excited for the upcoming school year and
all the exciting things in store for Future Educators Association (FEA)!
Lina Phung is going to be a junior at Cal State San Marcos who is majoring in Liberal Studies and is in the ITEP program. Her depth of study is Reading, Language and Literature. She loves to read and write and is currently apart of the Future Educator’s book club! Lina has been a part of Future Educator Association (FEA) since she was a Freshman and is happy to see how well it has continued to grow over the years. This year she is super excited to be co-president with Cait and is willing to help with any questions or needs from her fellow students. Lina hopes that this club will continue to be an exciting and supportive community for all future educators so you all will feel extra prepared and excited to go into the real world of teaching!
