Tim Boerst plays role in writing newly released standards


Tim Boerst, Professor of Clinical Practice at the School of Education served on the Writing Team for the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators' "Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics." The standards were released at the AMTE annual conference in Orlando, FL.

The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE), uniquely positioned as the lead organization for mathematics teacher education in the United States, puts forth these standards as a national guide for the preparation of prekindergarten through grade 12 (Pre-K–12) teachers of mathematics. The mission of AMTE is to promote the improvement of mathematics teacher education Pre-K–12 with stated goals focused on effective mathematics teacher education programs and effective policies and practices related to mathematics teacher education at all levels. The Standards for the Preparation of Teachers of Mathematics were created to address issues and challenges facing teacher preparation and articulate a national and comprehensive vision for the initial preparation of teachers of mathematics in Pre-K–12.
