CEA Student Program

CEA Student Program

CEASP offers unique opportunities in professional development, community outreach, leadership, and networking with future teachers all over the state. These opportunities are meant to support and supplement a future teacher's preparation and entry into the teaching profession. Workshops and conferences are offered on a variety of topics including classroom management, interviewing, resume writing, Praxis, etc.

There are several college campuses throughout the state that have local CEASP chapters. Each local chapter plans an enormous variety of professional development opportunities and community outreach activities throughout the year that are appropriate to their member's needs and wishes, including:

  • tutoring and mentoring in local schools
  • planning and implementing after-school and special event activities in schools
  • workshops on their campuses
  • school supply, canned foods, and winter coat drives
  • student leadership programs
  • Read Across America day activities
  • an annual Apple Banquet to honor and recognize members' contributions to their clubs

CEA Student Program members are also members (and receive the benefits of) the Connecticut Education Association, the National Education Association, and the NEASP.

What Can the CEA Student Program Offer You?

  • Workshops

    Want to know more about a particular educational issue or teaching technique? CEASP can provide workshops for your chapter on campus! Draw from our pool of experienced educators and staff, who can offer workshops on topics such as learning styles, effective lesson design, thriving (and surviving!) in your first years of teaching, mainstreaming special education students, legal responsibilities of teachers, and much more!

  • Conferences

    Keeping up with what's new in the profession can be overwhelming. That's why CEASP offers special conferences designed especially for students! In addition, as a CEASP member, you have the opportunity to attend any conference CEA helps to sponsor, whether on a local, state, or regional level, at a reduced student registration price!

  • Networking Opportunities

    No matter how you prefer to do it, CEASP offers you the opportunity to network with other students and teachers throughout the state. This is a great way to pick up ideas for your first classroom, solve problems, have key questions answered, and strengthen your ties to your profession!

  • Leadership Skill Development

    It's never too early to identify, develop, and fine-tune your leadership skills - they will serve you well in the classroom! As a CEASP member, you have the opportunity to develop leadership skills as you work with your campus chapter, the state organization, and the NEA Student program.

  • Tips on Resume Writing, Job Searching, and Interviewing

    Searching for your first teaching position is exciting, but can be a bit intimidating. How can you write a resume that is professional-looking, but stands out from others'? What steps should you follow when looking for a position? What are some of the basic "do's and don't's" of interviewing?

  • Practice Makes Perfect! Program

    One of the best ways to prepare for interviewing for your first teaching position is to practice. Call on CEASP's Practice Makes Perfect! program to go through mock interviews with real teachers and administrators who have served on district interview teams! You'll receive feedback and suggestions of how you can have the best interviews possible!

  • Benefits from CEA and NEA

    As a CEASP member, you're entitled to the member benefits afforded to CEA and NEA members, including a $1 million liability insurance policy that covers you when you work in schools! And that's just the beginning!
