The mission of the University of Maryland Terrapin Teachers program is to engage science and
mathematics students in the teaching and learning process so that they are prepared by the end of their four undergraduate years to be highly skilled middle and secondary science and mathematics school teachers who can go on to teach and inspire their students, and enable them to not only know about science and math, but to use these disciplines in their everyday lives.
Terrapin Teacher Partners
Our local school district partners are so important and are an integral part of the success of the program.

Terrapin Teachers' Student Ambassadors
The Terrapin Teachers Student Ambassador Program is a yearlong internship, which offers students the opportunity to become more involved in the recruiting and marketing efforts of the program. Ambassadors are expected to represent Terrapin Teachers at outreach events (First Look Fair, Maryland Day, orientations, etc.), assist with the logistical details for recruitment events, provide support for social media sites, distribute flyers and other promotional materials and serve as a positive leader and role model for new TT students.
