Be a Mathematics Teacher
"Learn Math first. That's the language of the Universe." — Neil deGrasse Tyson
As a mathematics teacher, you lay the groundwork for so much of a student's future. One day you will make clear a basic concept that a student will carry with them and use every day of their lives (even if they won't admit it). The next day you will inspire someone like yourself into a love of mathematics that will set them on a path to success as an engineer, an architect, a programmer, a scientist, a researcher, even a mathematics teacher.
Mathematics is an important way to make sense of the world. Middle and high school students need someone to help them make sense of mathematics.
The UMass Amherst College of Education offers many pathways to become a licensed Mathematics teacher. Every pathway involves developing professional teaching skills and experience, as well as a clear focus on how teaching techniques apply specifically to the field of mathematics. You work alongside experts in the fields of education and mathematics.
