Twelve Mansfield ISD students who are interested in becoming educators earned blue ribbons for their classroom creativity.
The high school students are members of the Texas Association of Future Educators (TAFE), an organization created to give students an opportunity to explore the teaching profession.
TAFE holds an annual conference to allow like-minded youth from across the state to network and engage in friendly competition. More than 2,000 students were in attendance at this year’s three-day summit in Huntsville to compete in 35 events.
