P416: Teach North Texas: Yes, a degree and certification in four years can be done

Kristin Sherman (University of North Texas, USA)

The Teach North Texas program is a replication of the very successful UTeach program at the University of Texas at Austin.  Our mission is to provide a high-quality teacher education that will increase the number and diversity of competent North Texas math, science, and computer science students entering the teaching field and assuming positions of educational leadership in their fields.  This program is unique in that we strive to have our students complete a degree in their subject and earn Texas teacher certification in four years.  This can be especially difficult for chemistry majors who are pursuing a BS in Chemistry with ACS certification.  This talk will focus on how this program came about, and how we worked with the chemistry advisor to develop a doable 4-year program for all chemistry majors.
