Find out more About CMLA
The Collegiate Middle Level Association is a professional education organization for college students preparing to become middle level teachers. Some colleges and universities have a chapter you can join, or you can start one at your institution, or you can become a member of the chapter at-large if your program is very small. CMLA’s are unique to each chapter, but all members have the commonalities of being dedicated to the developmentally appropriate education of young adolescents (ages 10-15) and passionate about developing their own ability to be effective middle level teachers. Check the AMLE website to learn about activities and opportunities available through CMLA. For even deeper involvement in the field of Middle Level Education in Pennsylvania, check out this opportunity to become the CMLA representative to the PAMLE State Board.
