Matthew Campbell, an assistant professor of secondary mathematics education in WVU’s College of Education and Human Services (CEHS), was recently appointed as WVU’s representative in the Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership (MTE-Partnership). Campbell succeeds a professor in the department of mathematics in this leadership role, and he is eager to bring his specialized focus on secondary mathematics teacher education to the table.
The MTE-Partnership is part of an initiative created by the APLU (Association of Public & Land-Grant Universities) dedicated to the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers in public and land-grant colleges and universities across the nation. The Partnership’s mission is to address the nation’s shortage of secondary mathematics teachers who are well-prepared to support all students toward new standards for mathematics learning. The MTE-Partnership is made up of 103 institutions of higher learning and K-12 school stakeholders across 31 states. Collectively, they have helped prepare 15% of the new secondary mathematics teachers in the U.S.
