Imagination + Innovation = Impact
Loyola Marymount University’s Center for Math and Science Teaching (CMAST) is committed to developing, inspiring, and retaining excellent STEM teachers.
- CMAST partners with educational organizations to implement a Teacher Leadership model that transforms math & science education by training, supporting, and growing a team of expert scholar practitioners (teachers) who collaborate and take action to lead the transition to Common Core State Standards within their schools and district.
- CMAST supports a teacher residency program that prepares a new kind of teacher inside the urban classroom – providing the practical learning, the hands-on experience and the support network needed to be effective right away. Residents spend the full academic year in an urban public school, developing under the guidance of an experienced mentor teacher. Over the course of the year, Residents move from a collaborative, co-teaching role in the classroom to an increasingly demanding, lead-teaching role.
- CMAST provides high quality professional development that supports teachers in analyzing their practice through the lens of CCSS rigor within the context of their instructional design choices to strengthen math and science (i.e. STEM) knowledge in order to create a classroom culture where students do mathematics/science.
