National STEM Security Initiative: Mathematics Teacher Professional Development and After-School Student Tutoring for Cherry Hill

This initiative seeks to use intensive professional development for teachers in elementary/middle and high schools in Cherry Hill to improve 1) attitudes about teaching mathematics, 2) understanding of how students best learn and understand mathematics, 3) content knowledge of mathematics, 4) repertoire of activities and engaging lessons, and 5) understanding of the alignment of state and local curriculum. Towson University faculty in the Fisher College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Education work directly with Cherry Hill teachers to provide professional development and support. In addition, this program provides after-school math tutoring and STEM enrichment twice weekly for middle grade students. Towson University students work as tutors with small groups of Cherry Hill students to help them achieve academic success in STEM areas, with a special emphasis on mathematics.
