MathTrack Institute


Innovative Pathways. Infinite Possibilities.


MathTrack’s Big News = Your Big Opportunity

Starting in 2023, we’ve become an officially recognized institute of higher education, MathTrack Institute (MTI)! Our innovative pathways offer specialized math content knowledge to power the next generation of excellent math teachers. 

The traditional approach to getting a degree and licensure in education is not meeting the needs of today’s educators, leaders, and students. Our groundbreaking, job-embedded model is helping to solve the math teacher shortage crisis in a way that’s thoughtfully designed for people working full-time in schools.

A letter from our CEO

It is with great enthusiasm and a deep sense of purpose that I write to you today. As the CEO of MathTrack, I am honored to introduce our innovative approach to addressing a critical need in the education sector—creating pathways for teacher licensure. Our mission is grounded in a profound commitment to enhancing the quality of education and ensuring every student has access to exceptional math teachers.

Our teachers are at the heart of education and play a pivotal role in shaping the future. However, the process of becoming a licensed teacher has, for too long, been fraught with barriers that hinder passionate individuals from entering the profession. We seek to remove these barriers through three groundbreaking programs:

  • Transition to Teaching Program

  • Apprenticeship-Based Bachelor’s Degree Program

  • Professional Development Programs (PD)

Each program is designed to be cost-effective, easing the financial burden on aspiring teachers, often from your school community. Together, we can make a profound impact on the lives of students, educators' success, and our communities' overall well-being.

We invite you to join us in this transformative journey. Thank you for considering our programs, and please do not hesitate to reach out should you have any questions or require further information.

A math-focused institution of higher education for working educators

At MathTrack Institute (MTI), we break down the traditional walls of post-secondary education to bring you a transformative, job-embedded learning journey designed for aspiring math educators.

Research shows that teachers are the most influential factor in their students’ success. A job-embedded approach brings teachers into the classroom sooner, where they gain more hands-on experience, and learn the most effective, impactful skills for their specific school and community.

We unleash untapped teaching talent by partnering with schools to recruit, train, and license future math teachers who are already in the classroom.

“Middle school students, taught by a six-year-experienced teacher in the previous year, received math instruction from a first-year MathTrack-trained teacher. Higher growth was seen in students who started below the 40th percentile in achievement, suggesting a positive trajectory for MathTrack participants despite the notable experience gap between the two teachers.”
