Math for America
Math for America ("MƒA") was founded in 2004 as an organization committed to teachers. MƒA has created four-year fellowships for accomplished public school mathematics and science teachers who make a lasting impact in their schools, their communities, and the profession at large. There are over 1,000 MƒA teachers across the organization's fellowships. Over the past five years, MƒA invested approximately $110 million in its NYC fellowships as well as advocated for similar fellowship programs across the country. In total, MƒA will invest more than $225 million in mathematics and science teachers over the next decade.
MƒA improves teacher retention nationally by building and supporting communities of outstanding STEM teachers. The MƒA model is based on the belief that collaboration, continued learning, and genuine respect enables teachers to grow professionally and provides long-term career satisfaction. MƒA has built a remarkable community of teachers who stay in the profession longer and define what teaching excellence means. These are teachers who inspire and motivate their colleagues. They change the lives of their students.
MƒA was founded in New York City by Jim Simons, Founder and Chairman of Renaissance Technologies, who along with his wife, Marilyn Simons, also founded the Simons' Foundation, which has a mission to advance frontiers in mathematics research and the basic sciences. The Simons Foundation provides a substantial portion of funding for MƒA , and Jim Simons serves as the Chair of the MfA Board.
