What We Do

The Center for Recruitment and Retention of Mathematics Teachers (CRR) at the University of Arizona was created in August, 2001 to address the shortage of qualified mathematics teachers at the middle and high school levels. Its goals are to retain mathematics teachers currently in the field and to attract mathematically talented college students to the teaching profession. Towards this end the Center coordinates several projects, including a program for new teachers (Induction Program), a Tutor Scholar Program to attract college students into mathematics education, teacher workshops, and an annual Mathematics Educators Appreciation Day (MEAD) Conference for teachers, grades K-14.
