What is Project C.A.F.E.?
“Teacher shortage” and “teacher retention”: These are two phrases heard loudly across the country. Project C.A.F.E. (Calling All Future Educators) is an opportunity for world language teachers in North Carolina to address these issues. This is an initiative to identify and recognize outstanding young people who could have a future in teaching a world language. As their nominating teacher, you will build a recognition program that suits you and your students.
Over 100 students were recognized through Project C.A.F.E. The role of FLANC will be to serve as liaison among the various C.A.F.E. programs across the state, to share information among those teachers, and to recognize the C.A.F.E. teachers and students at the annual fall conference.
Let’s plant the seed about becoming a world language teacher in the minds of outstanding young people. They are our future!
For more information about Project C.A.F.E., please contact the FLANC Past President (firstname.lastname@example.org).
