FIUteach is focused on preparing highly effective secondary science and math teachers. Students who are part of the program will graduate with a bachelor's degree in their STEM major as well as a certificate to teach math or science at the secondary level (grades 6-12).

We partner with science and math teachers at MDCPS elementary, middle, K-8 and high schools who are interested in hosting our FIUteach students for field experience. Participating mentor teachers will be paid a stipend of $125/student for each semester of participation.

Mentor Teacher qualifications:

  • Teacher for grade 3-12
  • Only math and science classes
  • Willing to host a student for 1-2 observations and 3-5 teaching classes
  • Clinical Education Certification is highly recommended

Interested teachers should contact Leslie Nisbet.

Mentor Teachers at new school sites should also have their principal email fiuteachadmin@fiu.edu.
