    Greetings, all!

    I haven't posted in a while, but it's good to be back. Quite a bit has happened since I finished my latest degree. Since completing my PhD last semester, I was offered the role of serving as Acting Academic Dean at my community college for the coming year. One of the disciplines I oversee is Math. As a social sciences program, this is clearly outside of my area, so I am not familiar with any programs.

    We have a huge dual enrollment program, and schools are trying to expand their offerings. As you program know, to teach credit level math one must have a masters with at least 18 grad hours in math. I'm trying to put together a list of affordable online programs that teachers could check out to get that credential. Many of our high school teachers already have a masters, so they'd just need the 18 hours.

    One thing we have to be aware of, however, is that the courses cannot be education courses. They can't be "Math for Teachers" even if the course prefix is MTH or MATH. SACS won't count them as math courses towards the 18 hours.

    I know about the program through Emporia. They are about $450/credit, which isn't horrible, but if there are more affordable ones out there, it'd be beneficial. I'd appreciate any suggestions this community might offer.

    Thanks!
    Matt

    Matt, I am on the same hunt for my math-teacher husband. If you have gotten additional information, would love it if you would post here.
