STEM Teaching

    Calling all Undergraduate STEM Teaching Scholars!

    Students who love biology and math have more career options than ever before. Saint Leo can show you how to set your passion on a new course by becoming a STEM teacher through a degree program that keeps you close to the subjects that matter most.


    Why Become a STEM Teacher?

    Science is everywhere! Technology is constantly changing. Engineering is involved in the structural designs of our buildings and roads, and also tackles the process of improving smart products for our homes. It is literally everywhere. Mathematics is involved in all occupations in every single aspect of our daily lives. By exposing students to STEM and opening student's minds to STEM concepts, you are essentially changing the trajectory of our future too. Make an impact on the lives of children and young adults who share your passion for science, technology, engineering and math. Stake your place in a high-demand profession where current teacher shortages in science and math translate into greater opportunities for trained and certified STEM teachers. 

    • JOBS! The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) has annually identified critical teacher shortages in the areas of science and math. These critical shortages translate into high demand for STEM trained and certified teachers. 
    • MAKE an impact in the lives of children and young adults.
    • IMPROVE the quality of STEM education for current and future students in your community.
    • SHARE your love of biology or math with others.
