NCTM Accepting Applications for Emerging Teacher-Leaders Grants for Elementary Math Teachers

  • October 12, 2018

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics supports teachers through vision, leadership, professional development, and research so as to ensure equitable mathematics learning of the highest quality for all students.

To that end, NCTM is accepting application for its Emerging Teacher-Leaders in Elementary School Mathematics Teachers grant  program, which aims to increase the breadth and depth of the mathematics content knowledge of elementary school teachers with a demonstrated commitment to mathematics teaching and learning.

For the 2019-20 school year, grants of up to $6,000 will be awarded, with only one teacher per school eligible to receive the award. Grantees will be expected to provide ongoing professional development to teachers within their school or district to strengthen their own mathematical understanding and instructional practices. This must include sustained in-service programs focused on improving the content knowledge of the elementary teachers within the school or district and working with teachers in their classrooms through demonstration teaching or co-teaching.

To be eligible, applicants must be a current NCTM member; be a classroom (elementary school) teacher with at least three years of experience; and have mathematics as a regular teaching responsibility. In addition, applicants must have the support of the school principal in becoming a mathematics teacher-leader within his or her school or district.
