PARTNERSHIP FOR TRANSITION TO TEACHING HOSTS MEET AND GREET
CONWAY – The UCA Partnership for Transition to Teaching: Planning and Advisory Team will host a Meet and Greet Meeting for 54 prospective candidates for the Master of Arts in Teaching degree program on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, at 4:30 pm at Mashburn Hall, Room 103, on the University of Central Arkansas campus. Each candidate will receive up to $5,000 to complete the degree program and teach mathematics, science or English or language arts in one of ten partnership school districts for a period of three years.
The meeting will feature officials from the partnership school districts and community team leaders, as well as, university administrators and MAT leaders who will share information and updates about their role in the partnership. The Partnership for Transition to Teaching is a $2.3 million grant that supports tuition payments for highly qualified mid-career professionals and recent higher education graduates to become licensed teachers in our partnership school districts.
