Albany--Veteran teachers are helping future educators get ready to enter the classroom, and hopefully put a dent in an ongoing teacher shortage.

Albany State held a penning ceremony to honor education majors for completing their student teaching.

PEN stands for Professional Embracing Novice.

Numerous veteran and retired teachers mentored these future educators.

The professionals shared their experience and provided valuable support.

"We have our seasoned teachers, our professional educators will be given the opportunity to pin our novice teachers those who're just going into the field." Said Dr. Cynthia Rand-Johnson, the Placement Director of Teacher Education at ASU.

About 55 student teachers were honored.

Many of them already have job offers.

"For those of us who've passed all of our tests and finished all or our qualifications I mean this is the moment that let's us know we're there we finally done it." John McFay, a Special Education Graduate. 

Roughly 75 students are expected to enter the program next year.
