CEHHS congratulates Lynn Hodge, Associate Professor of Math Education in the Department of Theory and Practice in Teacher Education. Hodge was awarded a $1.4 million grant through the National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. The grant will be used to recruit and prepare secondary science and mathematics teachers in the Appalachian region of Tennessee.
The National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science (including engineering and computer science) teachers. The program invites creative and innovative proposals that address the critical need for recruiting and preparing highly effective elementary and secondary science and mathematics teachers in high-need local educational agencies.
