Watching a student’s face light up with excitement for learning mathematics is a rush like no other! Become a teacher of mathematics and share the magic with learners. Teachers need a substantial background in mathematics, statistics, analytic and writing skills in mathematics and knowledge of content in core areas of the subject. The demand for individuals well trained in statistics, computer science, applied mathematics and education is greater than the available supply.
Area schools and organizations such as the Saint Louis Science Center offer excellent opportunities for working with students while learning to teach.
Enrolling in the College of Education teacher preparation program actively and uniquely engages you throughout your studies in working with secondary students as they learn and develop in informal and formal learning settings. The Mathematics - Secondary Education (9-12) program from University of Missouri–St. Louis recognizes that it prepares educators for a variety of roles and a variety of contexts (i.e. P-12 schools, youth serving organizations, museums, zoos, gardens, nature centers, after school programs, tutoring/mentoring programs, businesses, legislative offices, etc.) all of which impact student learning. We want to prepare community educators as well as P-12 classroom teachers who can provide relevance, application, and meaning to student learning in developmentally, socially, and culturally responsive ways. As a teacher candidate, you will work with students in youth serving agencies to support them in non-traditional settings. You will also gain valuable practical knowledge by applying university course content to interactions with young learners in academically focused content-based community agencies such the St. Louis Chess Club, Powder Valley, and many United Way agencies.
