K-5 Mathematics Endorsement

  • Due to revisions to align with new GaPSC program standards, the K-5 Mathematics Endorsement will be available beginning summer 2023.  

    The K - 5 Mathematics Endorsement at Metro RESA is a GaPSC approved preparation program that provides approved candidates with the coursework and related field experience required to add the K - 5 Mathematics Endorsement to a current Standard Georgia Professional Certificate. Each of the courses addresses the content, instructional practices, professional responsibility, and teaching aspects of the learner and learning. Candidates demonstrate competencies described in the InTASC Core Teaching Standards in the required course assignments.

    Upon successful completion of the endorsement, candidates may be eligible for a $1,000 per year stipend, for up to 5 years, based on funding approval by the Georgia General Assembly.
    For additional stipend details, review pages 2 and 3 of the GaDOE Math and Science Teachers Supplement FAQ document.
