Transition to Teaching Feature Summary

Transition to Teaching
The Transition to Teaching program enables IBM employees, who are interested in second careers in education, to become certified math and science teachers. Through Transition to Teaching, IBM employees can engage in both online and more traditional courses and are offered a leave of absence for student teaching. Participants also are provided with online mentoring and support throughout the process.

IBM initiated Transition to Teaching for a number of key reasons: to address the severe shortage of math and science teachers; to help raise the math and science achievement levels of our nation's youth and prepare them for the demands of the global economy; and to respond to the needs of IBM's growing force of mature workers.
