At Completion of the Program

At the close of the year of professional development, the supporting Math Recovery® leader will approve Math Recovery® Specialist designation. A teacher has two years to complete all requirements and be recommended for certification.

Once designated, an MR Intervention Specialist joins a national network of teachers supporting each other through online learning communities and national conferences.

Those who complete this program also have the option to continue their training and become Math Recovery® Leaders, Add+VantageMR® Champions, and/or SNAP Facilitators. This enables in-district training of Math Recovery® professional development courses at a significantly reduced cost as part of the approach designed to support long-term sustainability of the programs and build in-district self-sufficiency.
