Call for Applicants: Primarily Math
The Primarily Math program is currently accepting applications from K-3 teachers interested in developing special strengths as a K-3 mathematics teacher or who are ready to become leaders in their districts. Teachers earn 18 graduate credit hours at no cost to the teacher for tuition and fees, and a K-3 math specialist certificate, all from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Applications for early consideration are due Nov. 30, 2011. Teachers who apply by the early deadline will be notified of their status by Dec. 15, 2011. The final application deadline is Jan. 16, 2012. Please encourage teachers in your ESU, district or school to apply by forwarding this email to them, or send them the link to our website: http://scimath.unl.edu/primarilymath.
Teachers apply online at: https://cse.unl.edu/~scimath/apps/apply.php. NebraskaMATH programs are a limited resource and a very special opportunity for districts in Nebraska.

We are immensely proud of these teachers' accomplishments and want to make public their commitment to strengthening the learning and teaching of mathematics in their school and district.
Participating teachers will take three mathematics courses and three education courses to earn 18 graduate credit hours from UNL between June 2012 and June 2013 at no cost for tuition and fees. Classes for 2012 will meet in Omaha, and possibly Lincoln as well.
