Provide a summary of the project or program:
           The goal is to increase the impact on the professional development and financial support we offer to new teachers. It is unquestionably essential that beginning teachers receive the support they need to have a positive impact on their students and establish the foundation for a successful long-term career in the classroom. Our association works to achieve these goals through multiple avenues of support: 1. Scholarships/grants for pre-service and first-year teachers, 2. Seminars and trainings on effective classroom practices to universities and alternative certification programs, 3. Sponsoring university service chapters for aspiring educators and current student teachers 4. Hosting an annual statewide conference for pre-service and new teachers.

From the support we provide through our university chapters, partnerships, and services, A+PEL has had a long-term positive impact on our state’s teaching profession. With this appropriation we will be able to continue and expand our existing programs to offer support for more pre-service and first-year teachers and increase the success of the first year residency program for the university students participating.
