The 7-12 Math Field Endorsement program helped me develop a better understanding of teaching methods I could use to help my students not only grasp the concepts, but also have a deeper understanding about the material. It was very beneficial to work with professors who truly cared how you did in the courses and were interested in what your future plans were. If you are looking for a program where professors care, are willing to work with you one-on-one and care about your success and future, get your endorsement through the 7-12 Math program at UNK.
