First Year Teachers

Mentor Program

Are you interested in receiving a mentor specifically in mathematics? FCTM offers a mentorship program to our first-year teachers. A survey link will be available in the summer of 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year.


Teaching is Problem Solving

Teaching Is Problem Solving is a new site dedicated to sharing ideas about teaching with a focus on mathematics. 

For now, you’ll find videos about children’s early understanding of number in the Concepts Videos section. You’ll also find stories about teachers learning and discussing student thinking as well as engaging in formative assessment and lesson study in the What’s Next? Stories section. Examples of student thinking abound in both sections.

If you want to know when new material arrives, be sure to sign up on our website to receive notifications of new content and resources.

Miami University’s Project Dragonfly is accepting applications for 2020 Earth Expeditions graduate courses that offer extraordinary experiences in 16 countries throughout the world. http://EarthExpeditions.MiamiOH.edu


Earth Expeditions can build toward the Global Field Program (GFP), a master’s degree that combines summer field courses worldwide with web learning communities so that students can complete the GFP master’s part-time from anywhere in the United States or abroad. http://GFP.MiamiOH.edu


Project Dragonfly also offers the Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) master’s degree that combines web instruction from Miami University with experiential learning and field study through several AIP Master Institutions in the U.S. Applications for Miami’s 2020 cohorts are being accepted now with place-based experiences provided at zoos and botanical gardens in Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, New York, San Diego, Seattle, and St. Louis. New for 2020: residents of the Jacksonville, Florida, area can study at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, AIP’s newest Master Institution, and earn Miami’s AIP master’s degree. http://AIP.MiamiOH.edu


Graduate tuition for all programs is greatly reduced because of support from Miami University.


In support of our core mission of developing stronger teachers to increase student learning and transform education, Mount Holyoke College is offering scholarships for educators that enroll in our Master of Arts in Teacher Leadership program or our Master of Arts in Mathematics Teaching program starting in the summer of 2017. Details and links to each program can be found below.  

Our graduate programs are designed for working educators so they can balance life, career, and family responsibilities while pursuing a graduate degree. Participants can attend class sessions on campus or via videoconference from the comfort of their own homes.

In addition to our scholarships, qualifying educators may also be eligible for the federal TEACH Grant for up to $8,000.
