If you have a STEM degree or are a current student majoring in science, technology, engineering or math, the DREAM-Math information briefing on Feb. 6 is for you.

The Developing, Recruiting and Empowering Alabama Mathematics Teachers, or DREAM-Math, project is a collaborative effort between Auburn University’s College of Education, College of Sciences and Mathematics, Tuskegee University and other partners throughout the state to address the critical shortage of mathematics teachers in Alabama. DREAM-Math streamlines the process and removes roadblocks for people interested in becoming mathematics teachers.

The program is for those who have never been teachers but who have earned—or will have earned by May—a STEM degree that includes at least 12-15 hours of mathematics at or above Calculus I.

Funded by a $3.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Noyce Scholarship Program, DREAM-Math will provide participants a scholarship of more than $35,000 to complete a full-time, four-semester master’s-level teacher certification program. It also will support new teachers in launching their careers, including a $10,000 annual stipend as they complete four years of teaching in a high-need school.

Find out how DREAM-Math can help you find fulfillment in your career using your STEM degree by attending the information briefing on Feb. 6 at 4:30 p.m. CST in room 2456 of the Haley Center at Auburn University, or online via this zoom link—
