Future Educators is a student-run group including graduate students and postdocs who are interested in teaching and mentoring. Members are not necessarily committed to pursuing a teaching-focused career, but we feel that learning and thinking about teaching will have positive effects on our current and future careers. Our group meets regularly to discuss ideas related to teaching and mentoring in a research-based setting, and we also serve as a resource for locating teaching opportunities in the St. Louis area and around the country. Postdocs are strongly encouraged to attend the workshop on writing a teaching philosophy statement, and all first-year graduate students are welcome to attend our “How to pick a MTE-ship” panel in the spring.
