Students from across the state met in Columbia Missouri on the University of Missouri’s campus in Jesse Hall on Wed., Oct. 26, for the Future Teachers of America (FTA) state leadership meeting. The theme for the meeting was “Change the World… Become a Teacher.”
John Gilbert, a science teacher at Salisbury and a Paralympian, was the keynote speaker. Mr. Gilbert’s Wheelchair Basketball Team brought home a gold medal from the 2016 Paralympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. He addressed how teachers have the opportunity to encourage students at pivotal moments, as he spoke about his own life and the challenges he had to face.
The Buffalo High School students that attended the FTA State Meeting were Philip Canole, Bradon Clay, Taylor Holman, Emily Horn, Abigail Todd, and Isabell Waltman, with Mrs. Jill Maddux their sponsor.
“FTA is an excellent way for high school students to explore careers in education,” said Krista Meyer, MSTA’s Director of Student Groups. “If anyone needs optimism about the future of teaching, watching the kids at the FTA state meeting would provide it.”
