New year, new cohort! Last year, we hosted a webinar where we brought MAT Teacher Candidates and recent MAT alums together to chat and talk about their experience in and out of the classroom. This year, we’re bringing back the same format to connect recent MAT alums with our current Teacher Candidates!
Alumni and current teacher candidates from the MAT and MECA&D will come together for a 45-minute conversation and interactive Q&A, to share observations out in the field, and compare experiences on their time as a Teacher Candidate in our MAT program. Finally, we will go through updates on our MAT program and talk through the application process.
Join teacher candidates Tori Hamilton, alumni Madison Mahoney MAT '21, and Cooper Binette MAT '21, and Graduate Admissions Coordinator Joel Tsui on this webinar, along with a live Q&A session, by registering through the form below.
