Taking on Public Schools’ Growing Need

An innovative teacher training program at The University of Texas at Dallas, UTeach Dallas encourages some of the most promising math and science majors to pursue careers in teaching.

In 2007, The University of Texas at Dallas was awarded funding up to $2.4 million to improve teacher education in mathematics and science.  At the time, UTeach Dallas was one of 12 programs from across the country to receive funding from the National Math & Science Initiative (NMSI) to implement programs modeled after UTeach, a highly successful & widely acclaimed math & science teacher preparation program at The University of Texas at Austin.  Nearing the completion of its fourth year, UTeach Dallas has close to 350 students enrolled and still growing. As the program’s first graduates begin their teaching careers, the program is working towards an ambitious goal of graduating 50 new, highly qualified math & science teachers each year beginning in 2015.
