Every contributor to the NEACA is or has been a professional educator and coach. We do not claim to be experts in areas that we have never had personal experience. We have all dealt with the unruly student, the angry parent, the long hours, the poor pay and the inability to be in the places that we felt we should be.
REAL BECAUSE WE REALLY HAVE BEEN THERE
Our courses are filled with information that doesn’t always come out of a book because what comes out of books doesn’t always work! With over 100 years of classroom teaching experience in urban, suburban and rural settings you will find concepts, ideas and solutions for the daily challenges that you face.
The Credible Contributor
One thing that we know is credibility in the field of education requires 3 things:
- Appropriate Level of Education
- Appropriate Amount of Success
- Appropriate Length of Time
To be a contributor at the NEACE for courses in education requires a minimum of a Masters Degree in education (or in the course field), 80% of the teaching evaluations must have been at the distinguished level and the educator must have taught in a minimum of two schools. To be an educator in the athletic courses a contributor must have coached individual or team state champions, been in the classroom a minimum of 10 years as well as had a winning record over a 10 year period.
