This is a fantastic opportunity for veterans who are interested in pursuing a career in teaching mathematics at the public school secondary level. Attached is a flyer which details additional information/requirements relative to the ‘Veterans to Math Teachers’ Scholarship Program.
We strongly believe this program will provide veterans with a new gateway to a purposeful life in a deserving community. As important, we strongly believe that these mature men and women will provide qualities of leadership, strength and team work to the profession, improve capacity- building in their schools, and act as professional and personal role models for secondary school students. We also believe that this program will bring benefits to high need schools in terms of providing a new pool of STEM teachers.

TARRYTOWN, NY — This is one heck of a report card. Niche has come out with its new 2017 rankings of the "Best Places to Live" in New York, but it took a bit of a unique approach: The consumer rankings service assigned a grade, on an A+ to D- scale, to almost every city and town and many neighborhoods around the Empire state.
In the Hudson Valley, 24 of our Patch communities received A+ grades. Only four received a grade less than a B-. One of the fascinating things is that in many cases, Niche actually separated out villages, cities or neighborhoods from their surrounding towns.
Tarrytown received an overall grade of A+.
To arrive at the rankings, Niche.com took several factors into consideration, such as the quality of local schools, crime rates, housing trends, employment statistics and access to amenities.
Niche created a standardized score for each factor, and after weighting each factor, an overall score was calculated, which was again given a new standardized score.
Finally, Niche.com created a numerical ranking and assigned grades for each place. Click here to read more about the methodology.
