  Abstract: The Science Teacher-in-Residence (TIR) has played an important role in producing more physics teachers at Cal Poly. The TIR position has been continuously supported for the past 11 years. Initially the position was made possible by a grant from PhysTEC, but the dean of the College of Science and Mathematics has continued to support the position. Over the 11 years there have been four different TIRs, and on more than one occasion there have been two TIRs on campus together. They have taught reformed courses, introduction to science teaching courses for potential teachers, as well as methods and education courses for credential candidates. They have supervised student teachers, built relationships with local teachers and the School of Education. This talk will discuss the impact the TIR has had on recruitment of more science teachers, the different roles they have played over time, and how the position has been internally sustained.
