Future Professional Educators Club (FPE)
This active student club for future teachers provides an opportunity to meet others entering the teaching profession. Club members meet once every other week and participate in a variety of social, service, and professional activities throughout the academic year. Each Spring FPE hosts a Tea Time with Teachers Event where you have the chance to engage in conversation with those currently teaching. FPE engages in service activities from working with adults with special needs to collecting and delivering items for children at local hospitals. Additionally, students discuss current trends in education, visit area high schools to recruit future AAT students and participate in social events with other future teachers. FPE is affiliated with the Association of Texas Professional Educators (ATPE). Club participants receive membership to this professional association by joining our club. ATPE provides another avenue to network, to keep abreast of current policies and legislation impacting the profession, and to professional development opportunities. Each summer, members travel to Austin for the ATPE Summer Summit where they gain valuable information and share a memorable experience.
