The goal of SacMAST-L (Sacramento Math and Science Teacher Leaders) is to develop a cadre of teacher leaders in mathematics and science education able to aid in the implementation of the new standards (NGSS and CCSS-M) across the region. Twenty teachers were chosen to participate in intensive professional development in pedagogy, educational equity, Linked Learning, and leadership. Each teacher conducts in-depth action research in their classroom each year over the five-year program, and attends a minimum of 200 hours of professional development each year. This project is funded by a Noyce grant from the National Science Foundation.
