Loveland, Ohio – Students from Loveland High School’s Teaching Professions Academy (TPA) competed at the 2019 Educators Rising (EdRising) Ohio State Conference at Capital University on February 28 and March 1.
“I’m so proud of the TPA students for their great passion and performance, not only at the conference, but every day as they train for their careers in education,” said Bre Sambuchino, teacher at Loveland High School.
Sambuchino designed and implemented the TPA during the 2017-18 school year, allowing students the opportunity to explore, expand and support their interests in an educational career path, and taking pre-education college-level course work for credit while still in high school.
The annual EdRising Conference includes competition centered around students demonstrating their knowledge, skills and leadership in education. In both individual and team events, students are challenged to stretch their creativity, commitment and professionalism in areas such as Children’s Literature, Lesson Planning & Delivery, Public Speaking and Research Learning Challenges. The representatives from Loveland placed among the Top 10 in the categories of Children’s Literature K-3, Lesson Planning & Delivery (Humanities and STEM), Chapter Display, and Exploring Careers in Education. Loveland High School also earned recognition as an Educators Rising Honor Chapter for its chapter involvement and for creating a unique display encapsulating the 2019 conference theme “Embrace Your Super Power.”
