On behalf of Cleveland State University I would like to introduce and welcome you to the CSUTeach teacher preparation program. The UTeach model began back in 1997 as an innovative way to prepare high school science and mathematics teachers at The University of Texas at Austin. Since then, 21 other universities have implemented the program. We are excited to offer this effective and engaging model for math and science students at CSU, starting in fall 2010 -- even President Obama shares in the excitement for the program, mentioning UTeach in a national address last year.

As faculty and professors offer their extensive knowledge, feedback, and guidance, we encourage you to offer your suggestions as well. It is truly an exciting time to be involved in STEM teacher education, from the large gains made daily in educational technologies, to the improvements and innovative strategies for teaching inquiry-driven lessons. Stay tuned for more CSUTeach information and announcements!
