FEA is focused on exposing students to the rewards, joys, and challenges of careers in education.
One Purpose of FEA is to Elevate the image of teaching and promote it as a challenging and rewarding career
Another purpose of FEA is to Encourage students from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds to enter the education profession; students learn best from teachers who are similar to them
Bhss Main purpose of FEA is to encourage and support the Faculty and staff of Buford High School through activities like St Patricks Day and Halloween baskets, Easter egg hunt, Feature Teacher announcements, and Chalk Walk.
We attached this quote to apples we purchased (Sams) and placed in Teacher boxes the first week of school.
Thanks a MILLION for your participation in Feature Teacher!! FEATURE TEACHER-We gave out questionnaires we got online from the FEA advisor handbook at the first Faculty Meeting.Each Teacher who returned their form got a fun size candy bar with a note attached. Each Monday morning the person who makes announcements picks one sheet and reads the information over the intercom.
We choose an afternoon before Easter Break and invite all the Faculty to bring their Easter baskets –or a reasonable substitute-LOL- to the Media Center at 3:30. We invite all other clubs to participate by buying candy for the eggs, plastic eggs, refreshments, and/or gifts for prizes..The officers from each club are released about 3:15 to hide the eggs- Fortunately they are NOT real eggs as it sometimes takes months to find them all!!!

We are fundraising to defray the cost and in years past we have been able to pay at least $100.00 per member attending. The convention is a wonderful opportunity for students to travel, attend workshops in their chosen profession, and meet and interact with students from all over the country.
