MƒA Mentors

The Role of Mentors

The role of the Math for America (MƒA) Utah mentor is to teach, inspire and help prepare MƒA Utah fellows for the real world challenges and experiences of a secondary math teacher. The mentor is extremely important in the transition from content and theory to actual teaching and practice.
