There’s an increasing need for credentialed middle school math teachers due to retirements, an increase in student population, and the requirement that teachers be NCLB-compliant, not just hold a Supplementary Authorization in mathematics.
California doesn’t currently have a Middle School credential, which would likely be an attractive option to many students.
The Liberal Studies Major at Fresno State includes a 12-unit concentration area in upper-division coursework. Math is popular and the courses are excellent, but a Subject Matter Authorization in Mathematics requires considerably more units of math coursework (32 total).
Most Multiple Subject teachers who are teaching mathematics hold little more than a Supplementary Authorization (if that); to become NCLB-compliant, they are drawn to the CSET option.
Fortunately, MSTI can help provide quality workshops and coursework to help teachers obtain a NCLB-compliant Single-Subject Credential in Foundational-Level Mathematics.
