We are a small department of 3 tenured faculty and 2 full-time instructors. We service engineering, pre-professional, and a large school of education. But we need more physics teachers locally and regionally. Currently I am increasing outreach to local physics teachers to be a resource for them. We have instituted a Transition-to-Teaching program for folks with 4 year degrees in Physics or Engineering that want to become teachers. It is a condensed path towards teacher certification. It has produced a few local physics teachers, but not enough. I plan to increase my efforts on this front with the support of our School of Science and the resources of PTEC.
