  Abstract: Brigham Young University restructured the physics teaching program in 2004. Since that time, this year we will reach our 100th physics-certified teacher. The highlights and heartaches of this program will be discussed. The efforts of the College of Math and Physical Science to bring the Physics Teaching Program back to the Department of Physics and the support this came with from the College of Education will be discussed. The working relationships between the two colleges and the local school districts will be shared. How we fund a teacher in residence and the value of the mentor teacher network to develop our students as teachers will be highlighted as one of the strengths of the program. We will also share the efforts that are made with mentoring and induction of new physics teachers as part of this talk.
