ABC Pathway To STEM Teacher Education Program — MACSTEP 2.0 Is Designed For

  • Post-baccalaureates (who already have a degree in science, mathematics or engineering) who want to become certified to teach through videoconferencing technology, or attending on-campus courses, or a combination of both.
  • Post-baccalaureates who want certification, but also wish to complete many of their credits for a Masters Degree, and finish the M.S. shortly after beginning their first teaching job.
  • Post-baccalaureate from anywhere in Wisconsin or Northern Illinois.
  • Veterans, active military, Guards and Reserve — this program compliments the Department of Defense Troops to Teachers.
  • Teachers on an emergency, or substitute license, teaching at a public or private school, who wish to obtain a science or mathematics teaching license.

For post-baccalaureates, and contracted but unlicensed teachers – If you have a science, mathematics, or engineering degree and wish to obtain a science or mathematics teaching license, or if you are unlicensed and teaching on-the-job, you can join our certification program from any location within Wisconsin and complete the certification program within one year, while working full time. Our highly acclaimed program, MACSTEP 2.0, is now using videoconferencing technology so future mathematics and science teachers can participate in real-time classes from home, or their school, using a camera on their computer, and a reliable Wi-Fi connection in order to Zoom into class.

You will be interacting with a cohort of certification students and the instructors, while working through modules and assignments in order to complete course credits and fieldwork experiences. You can complete fieldwork and student teaching close to where you live, or at your on-the-job school while functioning as an unlicensed contracted teacher.
