Career Education Mentoring Program

The Career Education Mentoring Program is again being offered to new career education teachers, teachers returning to the profession after extended absences, and educators returning in a new career education program area after an absence of five years or more.  The goals of the Career Education Mentoring Program are as follows:

Meet the mentoring requirements set forth in the Educator Certification requirements.

  • Offer a professional learning community that includes collaboration and reflection among new teachers and mentors.
  • Provide the opportunity for new and returning teachers to become familiar with the teaching and administrative culture of the program area.
  • Support new teachers and teachers who are returning to the classroom in their work with students.
  • Build a cohort group of new and returning teachers, particularly in the program area.

Missouri FBLA-PBL had a very impressive showing at the National Leadership Conference this year.

Phi Beta Lambda, the collegiate level of our association, was represented by 59 students from 13 colleges and universities.  Missouri was proud to have Kimberly Clark, our very own Missouri VP of Membership, elected as the National North Central Region Vice President, making her one of the nine National Officers for Phi Beta Lambda.  Missouri also brought home 35 Top 10 finishes, as well as $5900 in scholarships

Future Business Leaders of America, our largest division, was represented by 455 students and advisers from numerous public and private Missouri schools.  With fierce competition of over 8,000, Missouri was still able to take home 31 awards and $2,930 in scholarships.  Missouri took home gold in two of the new performance events – 3D Animation and Social Media Campaign, as well as eight awards at the Regional Meeting.

High School of Business

High School of Business™ is designed much like a college business administration program. Students take approximately one course per semester, beginning with an introduction to business.  The program continues with courses in various business functions concluding with the capstone course, Business Strategies, that requires implementation of the principles addressed throughout the High School of Business™ program. High School of Business™ is designed to be phased in over a four-year period.

Money is available for you to start your own program. Contact Lori Niekamp at [email protected] for more details.
