Senior takes on state officer role for Illinois chapter of Educators Rising

Lorelai Hoban is not only the president of NCWHS’s chapter of Educators Rising, but she’s also the Public Relations Secretary for the Illinois Chapter

Senior Lorelai Hoban was recently named the Public Relations Secretary for the Illinois Chapter of Educator’s Rising. As an aspiring teacher, Hoban looks to lead other future educators in her new role.

LORELAI HOBAN is known around Normal West for being a hardworking and driven individual. 

Her hard work is shown through her school activities that keep her busy.

Perhaps, however, the most impressive role that Hoban has recently taken on is that of  Public Relations Secretary for the Illinois chapter of Educators Rising.

Her previous experiences in leadership helped her be selected for this role.

She credits the Ed Pathways classes at Normal West for giving her tons of leadership opportunities and teaching experience.

The pathway classes have put me ahead of a lot of other students on the track to become an educator. Most students don’t get observation hours until their junior year in college and I started observation hours my junior year of high school,” she states.

Hoban has been interested in teaching since she was three years old. Her goal in working with Educators Rising is to get more people interested in teaching as well as grow their expertise  in teaching.

“As the president at West I plan the meetings and gain the resources to share with everyone in the club as well as fun activities to better prepare everyone. My state role is preparing for the state conference in the spring with schools from all over Illinois,” she notes.

Once a month, Educators Rising hosts a virtual meeting where future educators from across Illinois meet up. They are currently planning a conference that will be hosted at Illinois State University. The conference will host Educators Rising groups from across the state. They will have breakout sessions to gain connections with administration at ISU.

This experience has helped Hoban gain confidence in her teaching abilities as well as leadership skills. She plans to attend  ISU this Fall. 

“I’m looking forward to seeing how many people are excited to become educators,” Hoban states.
