I always wanted to be part of a supportive and a diverse community and TEP is just that. My peers and I share a passion for transforming urban education and it is very encouraging.”
Math & Science Programs for Undergraduates
Joint Mathematics Education Program – JMEP
In response to the shortage of highly-qualified secondary mathematics teachers, Center X also partners with UCLA’s Mathematics Department to engage seniors in the Joint Mathematics Education Program (JMEP). JMEP offers a way for UCLA mathematics majors to begin taking teacher-education courses in their senior year. The following year, they are employed as full time mathematics teachers with full salary in TEP partnership schools and work toward a master’s degree in education.
