Since 2005, PIMSER has provided professional learning services for over 10,200 teachers and administrators across Kentucky. We provide ongoing professional development that models research based practices for classroom teachers, instructional coaches, principals, district and university administrators, university instructors, and state level education consultants. Through these multi-tiered partnerships at the local, state and even national level, PIMSER has positioned itself at the forefront of the changing educational landscape, providing the network model for KY Senate Bill 1 and statewide training on assessment literacy. The dedication of our staff to improving educational practices has made PIMSER a branded name in Kentucky school districts and is synonymous with quality services.
PIMSER was developed to continue the quality partnerships and outreach activities created through the work of two National Science Foundation grants: the Appalachian Rural Systems Initiative (ARSI) and the Appalachian Mathematics and Science Partnership (AMSP). Through these grants and the Master Teacher Project supplement from NSF, PIMSER developed 20 Master Teachers/Regional Teacher Partners who provide expertise for math and science improvement across the state by partnering with research scientists and science educators, teachers, and administrators to design and deliver effective professional learning. View the impact that PIMSER has had on state educational reform from 2005-2022.
Our mission is to support the advancement of math and science education throughout the commonwealth.
