There is a great need for more STEM teachers in our region in Texas.
As research suggests, there is a need for more STEM teachers in our region of Texas. Specifically, more STEM teachers of color.
Our project is specifically collaborating with our local high school and 2-year community college(s) to recruit candidates for our Noyce program, which is recruiting candidates to become STEM teachers.
It is too early for deliverables. We are only in Year One of the grant process. However, we have begun recruiting, and are willing to share suggestions of the process to date.
The broader impact of this project is to “grow our own” educators and recruit more STEM teachers; specifically, STEM teachers of color.
