MfA Master Teacher Fellowship
The Newton Master Teacher Fellowship, offered by Math for America, is a $50,000, four-year award available to outstanding teachers of mathematics in the New York City public high schools. The program's purpose is to recognize mathematics teachers who demonstrate solid mathematical knowledge and have outstanding performance records. This four-year program provides annual stipends of $12,500 to each Master Teacher and presents opportunities for professional development and collaboration with other teachers that will help to ensure that Fellows excel as teachers and are satisfied in their careers. Master Teachers stay in the schools where they are currently working. All Math for America activities happen outside of the work day. Math for America awards approximately ten Master Teacher Fellowships each year.
