The purpose of MTF program is to provide participants with increased science content knowledge and pedagogical skills that will lead the MTF Fellow to be recognized as science content leaders in their schools and beyond.
MTF responds to the critical need for K-12 teachers of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by encouraging talented STEM students and professionals to pursue teaching careers in elementary and secondary schools.
Master Teacher Fellows (MTF) is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The MTF Program is a five year program that rewards outstanding experienced elementary and secondary science teachers in high-need school districts.
In addition, the program supports the recruitment and development of NSF Teaching Fellows who receive salary supplements while fulfilling a 4-year teaching requirement and supports the development of NSF Master Teaching Fellows by providing professional development and salary supplements while they are teaching for five years in a high need school district. The goal of the program is to recruit individuals with strong STEM backgrounds who might otherwise not have considered a career in K-12 teaching.
