Center for Future Educators

The Center for Future Educators (CFE) at The College of New Jersey was established in 2010 to inspire, encourage, and recruit high school and middle school students who are considering teaching as a future career. CFE especially seeks future educators interested in teaching in high poverty and hard-to-staff schools and/or high shortage subject areas such as math, science, special education, world languages, technology, bilingual and ESL.

CFE believes that New Jersey’s students are entitled to have the best, highly trained teachers to promote academic progress and social skill development. CFE works collaboratively with New Jersey’s high schools and middle schools, colleges and universities, corporate, governmental, and community agencies to develop an exemplary model of future teacher recruitment. CFE is funded by a grant from the New Jersey Education Association.
