Share Your Love of STEM! Become a STEM Teacher!
Do you remember what made you fall in love with math and science? Perhaps it was a math or science teacher in middle or high school who sparked your interest. Middle and high school science teachers have the important job of helping students develop a passion for STEM!
Do you like helping others? Do you like sharing your knowledge, skills, and experiences? Perhaps a career as a STEM teacher is right for you!
You have two options at Frostburg State University if you want to pursue a career as a high school teacher in a STEM field. First, you can complete the teaching certification option available within the biology, chemistry, earth science, mathematics, or physics programs. Second, you can complete a bachelor’s degree in a STEM major and then enroll in the Master of Arts in Teaching program. Both options provide you the opportunity to complete the required education courses including two teaching internships at participating professional development schools.
Along the way, there are other exciting opportunities to develop your teaching skills and share your passion. You could become a tutor for a math or science course or a peer mentor for a general chemistry course. You can join in opportunities to do outreach to local schools and the general public. Undergraduate students are also hired to teach sections of developmental math courses.
