Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy in 11th year

ExxonMobil has announced that 155 third- to fifth-grade teachers from all over the USA have been chosen to attend the national 2015 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy.

The program is a week long, all-expenses paid, professional development for teachers that equips them with innovative ways to educate their students about science and math in efforts to inspire them in these critical subjects.

Back in 2005, ExxonMobil partnered with PGA Golfer Phil Mickelson and his wife Amy to launch the Academy. Ten years later, more than 4,500 teachers have been trained on effective math and science teaching techniques, which have impacted more than 300,000 students nationwide.
During the program, participants will work with a curriculum that was specifically created by the National Science Teachers Association and Math Solutions. Once the teachers return to their classrooms, they will teach students how to be science literate, using hands-on experiments that show how math and science us on a daily basis.
