A University Approach to Improving STEM Teacher Recruitment and Retention
Hubbard, Keith; Embry-Jenlink, Karen; Beverly, Lesa
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v51 n2 p69-74 2015
The authors describe successful STEM teacher recruiting and training practices developed through the Talented Teachers in Training for Texas (T4) program. They discuss implementing three distinctive recruiting experiences--a STEM Master Teacher Job Shadow, a STEM Day, and a NASA Aerospace Teachers Program--along with a multiyear scholarship and mentoring program designed to invite preservice teachers into an authentic, sustained academic community of practice supported by high levels of engagement with caring STEM practitioners.
