New Science Teachers:
Are you new to science teaching (in your first 3 years) and would like to have a mentor in the science content area you teach? Would you like to be part of a national network of science teachers and their mentors? Do you know any teachers in their first 3 years of science teaching you could pass this information on to?
The Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance has a limited number of scholarships to support Maine middle and high school new teachers who would like to participate in the eMSS program, a national science mentoring program originally supported by a National Science Foundation grant and offered through the National Science Teachers Association.
You can learn more about the eMSS program and access the application by going to emss.nsta.org. If you are interested in the scholarship, please indicate that in the narrative when you fill out the application. There is no cost to teachers who receive the scholarships, but there is an expectation that you will fully participate in the program.
