Teachers in residence l.jpg
Teachers-in-Residence

  • Experienced teachers from Milwaukee Public Schools.

  • On special assignment at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.

  • Link academic teacher preparation and urban classroom practice. 

  • Align teacher preparation and K-12 reform initiatives.


Met report recommendations l.jpg
MET Report Recommendations

  • The mathematical education of teachers should be seen as a partnership between mathematics faculty and mathematics education faculty.

  • There needs to be more collaboration between mathematics faculty and school mathematics teachers.

  • Prospective teachers need mathematics courses that develop a deep understanding of the mathematics that they teach.

  • Elementary School Math Methods

  • Geometry

  • Problem Solving


Collaboration l.jpg
Collaboration . . .

"The TIR's bring the perspective of how to present this (the content) in an elementary classroom, and what a teacher could expect from the elementary school students. They ground the course and make it relevant to the future experience of the prospective teachers”

Gabriella Pinter, PhD



Collaboration27 l.jpg
Collaboration . . .

“The TIR's move the class to hands-on activities and discussions quickly. This opens up the classroom to a different level of discourse and involvement than is usually found in a university math class.”

“The TIR's look more critically at who is in a presentation group, adjusting group dynamics to enhance presentations and problem solving"

Gabriella Pinter, PhD


Slide28 l.jpg

Paige RichardsMPS Elem. School Teacher-in-Residence @ UWM & MATC

  • Co-teach mathematics foundations courses at MATC.

  • Design, implement and supervise math internships.

  • Facilitate the student transition from MATC to UWM School of Education.


Collaboration29 l.jpg
Collaboration . . .

"As a mathematician, I can attest that the greatest addition our TIR has brought to the content courses in mathematics for elementary teachers at this college has been her knowledge and experience of pedagogical issues.  Her K-12 classroom expertise has been invaluable in the transformation of our pre-service teacher courses.” 

David Ruszkiewicz, MATC
