We are currently working with our physics teacher candidates to find positions where they are only teaching physics. Most are in positions where they teach other sciences, since there are so few physics classes in Bronx schools. We are also working with principals to help them develop viable physics programs. We include physics content in our introductory science teaching methods courses, so all of our teachers have some background in physics, regardless of their undergraduate major.

PTEC membership would help us develop best practices in physics teacher education, and will provide support for those schools who wish to offer physics but need additional resources to do so.
