About Mathematics Teacher Educator

  • About Mathematics Teacher Educator

    The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the  Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) are excited to partner on this joint online journal.  

    Mission and Goals

    Mathematics Teacher Educator contributes to building a professional knowledge base for mathematics teacher educators that stems from, develops, and strengthens practitioner knowledge. The journal provides a means for practitioner knowledge related to the preparation and support of teachers of mathematics to be not only public, shared, and stored, but also verified and improved over time (Hiebert, Gallimore, and Stigler 2002).

    Mathematics Teacher Educator is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal for practitioners. Two issues of the journal are published each year (for members only) and the cost is an additional $20 for Full Individual members, and $10 for Student and Emeritus members.


    The primary audience of Mathematics Teacher Educator is practitioners in mathematics teacher education, with practitioner broadly defined as anyone who contributes to the preparation and professional development of pre-K–12 pre-service and in-service teachers of mathematics. Mathematics teacher educators include mathematics educators, mathematicians, teacher leaders, school district mathematics experts, and others.

    The 2014 Mathematics Teacher Educator session (PDF) at the NCTM Research Conference provides additional information about the scope and purpose of the journal and criteria for manuscripts.
