Scholarship enables Mid-Career Transition to Math, Science Teaching

Professionals looking to change career paths and become teachers can now do so with minimal financial commitment as Noyce, a new program at the Judith Herb College of Education at The University of Toledo, offers a fast-track, on-the-job teacher licensure program and scholarships up to $17,220.

Informational sessions will be held Thursday, February 5th and Monday, February 9th at 7 p.m. in Gillham Hall 3100 at The University of Toledo, 2801 W. Bancroft, Toledo, Ohio, 43606.

“This program is designed for individuals who have strong subject knowledge, such as accountants, engineers and other science majors who might want to teach science or mathematics,” said Dr. Charlene Czerniak, UT professor of education. “They already have the subject knowledge they need; all they need is to learn the best ways to convey it to students.”

According to Czerniak the program is ideal for those who have considered teaching, but can’t afford to quit their job to go back to school. Those that complete the program must teach in a high-needs school district in Ohio for 2 years, she said.

According to Czerniak, professionals accepted into the program will receive a scholarship to take 12 credit hours focused primarily on teaching methods and classroom engagement, as their professional experience will replace the need for most content and subject course work. There is a high need across Ohio and the nation for qualified math and science teachers, with an expected growth rate of 12 percent between 2006 and 2016 according to the Ohio Bureau of Labor.
