What is NSEA Aspiring Educators?
NSEA Aspiring Educators is a branch of NSEA (Nebraska State Education Association) and NEA (National Education Association). Formerly the club WSEAN, it is a group for all education majors. With becoming a member of NSEA Aspiring Educators you get many benefits: A $1,000,000 Liability Insurance, The NEA Today and Voice (magazines keeping you up to date with the teaching profession), a membership card that gives you discounts to various places, and don’t forget a chance to meet new friends across the state!
What does NSEA Aspiring Educators do?
As a local chapter, we have meetings at 6 p.m. every other Monday in Benthack Hall Room 108. Meetings usually last about one hour. During these, you can get to know other education majors through games and activities as well as gain information that is related to the teaching profession. We often have guest speakers that have been state-level NSEA representatives, area administrators, past WSC Aspiring Education Students, and first-year teachers.
As part of the statewide level of Nebraska State Education Association - Aspiring Educators, we have the opportunity to attend fall and spring conferences, hosted by Aspiring Educator chapters from other institutions in Nebraska. We even host them at WSC every few years. During the spring conference, there is opportunity to engage in the Delegate Assembly where state-level executive board members are selected and we vote on new laws that we would like the state-level Aspiring Educators to have.
One important thing to remember about our Wayne State chapter and the state-level events is that you get to meet a lot of great people and make some friends who you may have never had a chance to have known!
