Multiply Your Impact: Math Fellows and Teach For America
Despite evidence that success in math significantly enhances one’s access to opportunities and one’s ability to earn throughout a lifetime, less than fifty percent of students graduate from high school prepared for or interested in college-level math, with many of them losing interest in it upon entering secondary school. Given this challenge, the need for passionate math teachers committed to changing the life-outcomes of students in low-income communities is more urgent than ever. Please join us for a discussion of the ways you can continue to teach by applying to Teach For America. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in Q&A with Joe Koglin, a former math teach and our director of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Initiative, to discuss some of the challenges, triumphs, and opportunities in teaching math in low-income areas.
