SCU Mathematics majors teaching in local school districts

Over the last five years, seven SCU mathematics majors and 1 mathematics minor have received their single-subject teaching credential in mathematics and have gone on to teach in high schools and middle schools in local high-needs school districts. Supported by a Robert Noyce scholarship (administered by Tamsen McGinley, a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science) these scholars received full tuition to attend SCU’s credential program in the School of Education. A requirement of the scholarship is that recipients teach in a high-needs school district for two years, upon completion of the credential program. However these SCU math students (along with 6 other SCU students in other STEM disciplines) continue to work in their schools, long after their two-year commitment has ended. We are very proud of them, and their dedication to teaching STEM subjects to all students.
