Attend these institutes and you will:

Be better prepared to teach your classes in the fall:

  • You will work in small groups with expert teachers and supervisors
  • You will review your school's curriculum materials and discuss how they can best be used and supplemented

Be better able to excite and motivate your students to do math and science:

  • You will focus on hands-on activities, problem solving, demonstrations, and real-world applications
  • You will discuss how to respond to different student learning styles in math and science

Be more confident in starting the school year:

  • You will leave the program with materials for immediate use in your classroom
  • You will develop lesson plans for the first month of school

Be part of a network of new teachers with a shared experience:

  • You will work with teachers who are at the same point in their careers as you are
