Hey Teachers! Are you: • A leader on your campus?
• A teacher with 4–5 years experience?
• An innovative educator teaching grades 3–8?
Lone Star College-Houston North, in collaboration with Stephen F. Austin State University, is recruiting new Mentor Teachers for their elementary school eld experience course called Step 1.
Whether you are interested in STEM teaching or unsure if it's the career choice for you, Step 1 is a free 2-hour SFA credit course offered at LSC-Houston North through which you can try out teaching in a supportive environment.
You will: • Become a part of a STEM learning community
• Gain valuable experience inside actual classrooms
• Learn from master teachers
• Improve your leadership skills and résumé
• Inspire young minds
• Have an opportunity to become a T4X Scholar
Step 1 is open to all STEM majors and allows you to explore teaching without the stress of quizzes, exams
or a long-term commitment.
If you are undecided but curious about teaching, give Step 1 a try!
As a Step 1 Mentor Teacher you will be asked to host a pair of LSC-HN/SFASU students in your classroom and model how to teach exemplary lessons.
The LSC-HN/SFASU students will then be asked to plan and teach three math or science lessons using grade-appropriate standards.
The three lessons will be written, reviewed, and practiced at LSC-HN/SFASU prior to coming into your room to teach.
You will also have the opportunity to review the lessons before they are taught in your classroom.
You will be asked to observe the lessons and give the students written feedback as well as provide a short nal evaluation form at the end of the semester.
Step 1 Mentor Teachers will receive a stipend for their time and the work they do with our students.
There will be a short training prior to the start of the school year to learn the expectations of your role.
Join us and become a part of this nationally recognized program preparing the best science and math teachers of the future.
