Congratulations to Our 2023 Future Educator Fellows 

We would like to extend a warm welcome to this year’s 15 Future Educator Fellows, who will be attending the PAEA Education Forum in New Orleans. The Future Educator Fellowship is designed to help PA students develop foundational and functional educator competencies and demonstrate their learning through modules, teach-backs, and scholarly presentations. The fellowship is aligned closely with the PA Educator Competencies to create an initial pathway for educators to begin skill development that allows for professional development throughout one’s career. 

The Fellows will kick off the Fellowship by attending the annual PAEA Education Forum, followed by a year of monthly modules, leading them to work through educational programming designed to enhance their understanding of the components needed to be a successful PA educator, preceptor, and mentor. 

We’d like to introduce this year’s fellows. If you see them at the Forum, be sure to say hello.
