Induction Program


Induction teachers work on an investigation.
The Teacher Induction Project aims to support middle and high school teachers new to mathematics education. First and second year teachers are invited to participate. Experienced teachers who will be teaching mathematics for the first time are also invited to participate.

Participants will be paid an $800 stipend, half of which will be paid at the end of each semester.

Participants will attend monthly Saturday sessions throughout the school year. These sessions provide a format to share ideas, materials, and concerns, deepen mathematical knowledge, model good teaching, and promote collegiality.

The Saturday seminar dates for the 2016-2017 school year are-

  • August 13, 2016
  • September 10, 2016
  • October 22, 2016
  • November 19, 2016
  • December 10, 2016
  • January 21, 2017 MEAD Conference (7:30 AM - 1:30 PM)
  • February 11, 2017
  • March 4, 2017
  • April 8, 2017
    These seminars will run 8:30 AM -12:30 PM unless otherwise noted or notified.
    Sometimes game days require time adjustments.

    In addition to the Saturday sessions. each participant is assigned to a coach from the University of Arizona. These coaches are all former middle or high school teachers. Coaches will meet with you several times a semester to help plan lessons, observe, collaborate on concerns including classroom management, best practices, motivation, maximizing classroom participation and time on task, assessment techniques and more. The coaches will also participate in the monthly Saturday sessions.

    Induction teachers discuss work with coach, Jennifer Canright.

    A maximum of 10 teachers will be accepted. Preference will be given to teachers from partnering districts. Teachers who teach math exclusively will be given priority over teachers with split assignments.
    We will begin accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year in May.
