ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez has announced a $2 million initiative to hire math and sciences teachers in low income and rural schools in New Mexico.

Martinez outlined her plan at a news conference Tuesday in Albuquerque.

She says the effort will include multiple components to increase the hiring of math and science teachers in hard-to-staff areas throughout the state.

That will include a loan forgiveness program and pay incentives for teachers who move to certain schools.

The governor also proposes up to a $5,000 pay bonus for the best 125 highly effective math and science teachers who move to underserved schools.

Eligible teachers would be those who are determined to be the most effective in helping students under the state's new teacher evaluation program.
