Arizona Master Teachers of Mathematics (AZ-MTM)
The School of Mathematical Sciences (Department of Mathematics), the College of Education the Tucson Unified School District, the Sunnyside School District, the Pima County Regional Support Center and the Arizona K-12 Center will collaborate to create 20 Master Teachers.
These Master Teachers will provide school, district and state-level leadership in K-8 Mathematics. The project provides extensive training to Master Teacher Fellows in the leadership of professional learning communities, analysis of authentic artifacts of practice, coaching and mentoring strategies, equity in mathematics teaching and learning, organization structures and systems thinking, and pre-service teacher education.
The program uses an apprenticeship model, with Master Teacher Fellows taking increased leadership roles and responsibility for professional development in mathematics within their schools and districts as the program progresses.
