Math in the Middle Institute Partnership

Empowering Middle-Level Mathematics Teachers

OPS teachers featured in magazine


To honor the achievements of the two cohorts of Omaha Public Schools teachers in Math in the Middle, the Center for Science, Mathematics & Computer Education has released a magazine highlighting these 32 teachers and their progress in the program. Eighteen teachers graduated in August 2010 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's summer commencement, while 13 others graduated in August 2011.

In 2008, Math in the Middle partnered with OPS to submit a proposal to the National Science Foundation for funding the pursuit of master's degrees for middle level teachers who teach in districts that serve a large number of students who live in poverty. The partnership has been a rousing success. As follows is an excerpt from the magazine by Jim Lewis: "We are quite proud of the Omaha Public School mathematics teachers who are part of Math in the Middle. The district is fortunate to have such a dedicated and capable group of teachers."

An electronic copy of this magazine is available here. To receive a hard copy of the magazine, contact the Center for Science, Mathematics & Computer Education at (402) 472-8965.
