Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy Home

Welcome to the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy 

With the generous support of Phil Mickelson and ExxonMobil, we have created a unique learning experience that will:
  • deepen understanding of mathematics and science content at grades 3-5 in the areas of data and statistics, measurement, and force and motion;
  • build expertise in facilitating student learning through problem solving and inquiry; 
  • demonstrate the interconnections between mathematics and science that support and enhance student learning; 
  • provide an understanding of how children learn and how to translate that knowledge to classroom instruction;
  • increase knowledge and use of instructional resources to support student learning;
  • encourage school teams to network with other professionals in mathematics and science education.
Academy Mission

To conduct a professional development academy for teachers of grades 3-5 that results in improved learning experiences for their students by:
  • enhancing grade appropriate mathematics and science content knowledge;
  • demonstrating the interrelationships between scientific inquiry and mathematical problem solving;
  • using the tools of mathematics to build understanding and connections to science concepts; and
  • modeling "best practices" in teaching and learning.
