The Goals of the Pathway to Mathematics Program
- PTM will prepare a total of up to 25 mathematics teachers (over the five-year period) who will be certified to teach mathematics at the secondary level.
- PTM seeks to create a steady stream of future alternative master’s degree mathematics education majors, which in turn will increase the number of mathematics teachers available to teach in local school systems.
- PTM will enhance middle and high school student achievement by providing certified mathematics teachers in high needs schools that currently lack certified math teachers.
- PTM will create a replicable model to provide ongoing mentoring and professional development for novice mathematics teachers that will increase the likelihood that they will be retained and become career teachers.
