What Is It?
The purpose of the SNCAE is to help you make a smooth transition from the campus to the classroom – to give you the edge as a teacher in those first years. SNCAE is an organization for students in undergraduate and graduate education programs. It is affiliated with the North Carolina Association of Educators and the National Education Association.
What Can It Do For Me?
