In the News: "For 'Master Teachers,' a Chance to Re-energize"

Posted: July 29, 2014

Buffalo State has a proven track record in the area of education in general and mathematics and science teaching in particular. Given its reputation, the college was selected as a regional host campus for the New York State Master Teacher Program—a statewide initiative that brings together outstanding, experienced science and mathematics teachers from grades 6 to 12—in 2013.

A recent Buffalo News article profiled the program and reported on some of the master teacher’s on-campus activities this summer.

"This program is giving teachers a really unique opportunity to come together and share their ideas," David Wilson, associate professor of mathematics and co-director of Buffalo State's mathematics and science master teacher program, told News reporter Denise Jewell Gee.

Master teacher program participant and Lancaster-based teacher Kathleen Stadler agreed. "I'm constantly reflecting, how can I get better? How can I do this? How can I do that?" Stadler told the News. "This is an environment where those things can actually come to life."

The master teacher program provides high-performing secondary science and mathematics teachers with stipends of $60,000 over four years; support for conference attendance; and opportunities to attend, design, and/or lead high-quality workshops. Master teachers work closely with preservice and early-career fellows in their regions to develop future world-class educators.
