Such efforts should include sustained in-service programs focused on improving the content knowledge of elementary school teachers within the school or district .

To be eligible, applicants must be a current NCTM member (on or before October 15, 2015), a classroom (elementary school) teacher with at least three years of experience,, and teach mathematics as a regular responsibility. In addition, the applicant must have the support of the school principal in becoming a mathematics teacher-leader within his or her school or district.
