Administrators from the Developing, Recruiting and Empowering Alabama Mathematics Teachers, or DREAM, are hosting an online informational session via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. CT on Thursday, April 28, to provide details for anyone interested in becoming a mathematics teacher.

The DREAM-Math project is designed to help those who are not currently a teacher but who have a mathematics or other STEM degree that includes at least 12-15 hours of mathematics (at or above Calculus I) become a mathematics teacher. DREAM-Math will provide a scholarship of more than $35,000 to complete a full-time, four-semester master’s-level teacher certification program beginning in May.

It also will support them in launching their careers, including a $10,000 annual stipend as they complete four years of teaching in a high-need school. Time is short, but it is not too late to apply for the May 18 start of the first cohort.

The session is available via this Zoom link, and the program is designed for anyone who is interested in becoming a mathematics teacher and make a positive difference in students’ lives throughout Alabama communities.
