This project addresses the recruitment and retention of K-12 STEM teachers where there is a chronic shortage in New York City.
We will examine the three-tiered model used in the Noyce program to recruit and retain STEM teachers at both universities, New York City College of Technology and Borough of Manhattan Community College.
A three-tiered STEM education model including teaching internships and scholarships is used to recruit and train prospective STEM teachers in New York City.
This project has recruited a total of 10 new scholars to become future STEM teachers in New York City. The Noyce program will recruit additional STEM students and continue to to train and mentor them to become prospective teachers in high-need schools.
This project will increase the number of certified STEM teachers who teach in high-need school districts. We will continue to expand this project with the recruitment and retention of STEM students.
