Teaching Mathematics or Science
The achievement gap is an urgent concern in the fields of mathematics and science. While 85 percent of white eighth grade students across the nation scored at basic, proficient, or advanced levels in mathematics, only 57 percent of African American and 66 percent of Latino eighth graders scored basic or above. Our students need your expertise and dedication to change this reality in your classroom, for your students.
Candidates who meet the eligibility requirements to teach math or science bring a strong academic background and/or career experience that allows them to become successful first-year teachers. In joining this selective network, TEACH Charlotte participants teach math and science at the middle or secondary level in classes ranging from sixth through twelfth grade. In high school, math teachers might teach algebra I or II, geometry or pre-calculus, and science teachers may teach biology, general science, physics, or chemistry. In middle school, most math teachers teach lessons grounded in number sense, pre-algebra and algebra, basic geometry, and statistics and probability, while science teachers teach general scientific concepts to students across a variety of different disciplines. All teachers are charged with ensuring their students master the content knowledge for their particular grade level according to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study.
