Rockland, Dutchess students take part in Today's Students Tomorrow's Teachers event

More than 100 students from Rockland and Dutchess counties took part in a first-of-its-kind conference Thursday.
Students from middle schools, high schools and colleges participated in Today's Students Tomorrow's Teachers.
The all-day event consisted of seminars and discussions, focused on education and also offered them the opportunity to engage with teachers as mentors.
"We have a critical shortage of teachers, especially teachers of color," says Dr. Bettye Perkins, CEO of Today's Students Tomorrow's Teachers. "So, we are here to motivate and inspire and expose students to this noble profession."
Since Today's Students Tomorrow's Teachers began nearly 30 years ago in Westchester, it has grown to include more than 1,000 participants across four states in recent years.
