TEAM-UP is proud to be a
NSF Noyce Capacity Building Program, NSF Noyce Phase I Project Site, PhysTEC Comprehensive Site, and 100Kin10 Partner
We have two upcoming events to help you learn more about the teaching profession, both are on Wednesdays 5-6pm MZ 108.
Nov 1 – Debunking Teaching Myths
We hear a lot of anecdotes about teacher pay, satisfaction, and challenges, but what does the actual data say?
Nov 8 – Stories From the Field
Hear from teachers from a diversity of backgrounds about why they became teachers and what their jobs are like.
For both events, you can drop in and out whenever you can. And if you have time to stick around after, you can learn more about how you can explore becoming a teacher with Internships and Scholarships through TEAM-UP. These events are hosted by the Teacher Education Alliance, a Mines student club. Dinner Provided!
If you are a Mines undergraduate student, graduate student, or alum and the idea of teaching secondary (grades 7-12) science or math interests you, then please email Dr. Kristine Callan at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an advising appointment.
We have Information Sessions for prospective students every semester during pre-registration advising week. At these sessions, you can not only learn about TEAM-UP, but also hear from panels of current TEAM-UP students and practicing teachers. Stay tuned for the details of exactly when and where! In the meantime, you can download a current advising sheet here. (Last updated 7/28/17.)
The Teacher Education Alliance (TEA) is a forum for discussion of any education related issues, not just high school or middle school teaching. The club meets approximately every other Wednesday from 5-5:50 pm in the TEAM-UP House. See the full schedule and RSVP here.
