Teachers in Industry offers two options: a summer professional development program and our singularly unique master’s degree option. We are now a statewide program with opportunities for teachers around Arizona to fully participate - including teachers in rural areas!
Our goals are to increase teacher retention and to improve STEM teaching and learning. Teachers in Industry achieves its goals by offering teachers paid summer work experiences in Arizona industries combined with graduate-level coursework that leads either to a Master's Degree in Teaching and Teacher Education or professional development credits, depending on your needs. In addition to the summer classes, teachers in the master's degree option also take courses in their content area, leading to increased content knowledge and application in your teaching.
