Dear Colleagues,

Please distribute this widely through your university and professional
networks. It is a wonderful opportunity for bilingual students, who
have completed their B.A. and are interested in teaching science.
Adelphi University received funding through Race to the Top to develop
a residency program for bilingual (Spanish or Haitian Creole) students
with an an M.A. and a strong science background.  Candidates will
engage in a clinically based, hands-on training in support of the
national shortage of bilingual science educators.

Project BEST offers a wealth of benefits, including the opportunity to
earn a master's degree, mentorship from esteemed professionals and a
substantial stipend
and living allowance.  See the additional information below and
attached flyer.  For more information, students can go to:
.  Interested students are welcome to contact me at
dgordon at adelphi.edu or my colleague Dr. Tracy Hogan at
hogan at adelphi.edu.

All best,

Daryl Gordon
Adelphi University

$10,000 tuition stipend and $30,000 living allowance while earning an
M.A. in Science Education, with initial New York State certification
(grades 7-12) in a science discipline (biology, earth science,
physics, or chemistry) and a bilingual extension
Mentorship by highly qualified teachers and university faculty through
a one-year full-time teaching residency
Involvement with the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS)

Students must be bilingual in Spanish or Haitian Creole, hold a
bachelor's degree with a strong science background, and commit to
teaching in a high-needs district after program completion.
