At UNT, we take very seriously our mission to improve both the quality and quantity of secondary teachers of science and mathematics. Part of this mission includes providing professional development for current high school teachers, including our alumni and the mentor teachers who provide the essential field experiences that form the backbone of our teacher education program. We had a nice write-up about these efforts in the local newspaper this week.
