Teacher Recruitment

And Training

Who We Are

Teacher Recruiting and Training is dedicated to advancing, training, and recruiting STEM teachers within New Jersey schools.

Educator Appreciation Campaign

With everything going on, the TR&T group decided that now more than ever it is important to show educators how appreciated they are. The group launched the #NJEDHelpers Project. From November 23rd to December 23rd, sign our pledge and commit to do something kind for an educator. 

Some examples include:

Key Results


  1. To increase the number of qualified teachers teaching in a STEM-related subject matter in New Jersey.
  2. To increase the number of, and participation in, quality science, technology, engineering and mathematics and STEM professional development opportunities.
  3. To increase the number of partnership opportunities to develop a stem pipeline for students and teachers.

Key Results
