Using a reflective, collaborative and justice-oriented approach we prepare teachers who create productive learning environments, critically reflect on their teaching and student learning, and interrogate their own biases and confront inequities in schools.


As a teacher candidate in our M.A.T. program you will have the opportunity to explore questions related to this work, such as: How can I create a productive learning environment to meaningfully engage my students? How can I foster students' academic, social, and emotional development? How can I learn from and improve my teaching? How can I confront bias and inequity in my school?

In one academic year candidates earn Washington state residency certification and a master’s degree (see information about certification requirements for other states). You will experience intentional school-based placements, small collaborative classes, active development of cultural competence, and personal mentoring from faculty members and local school teachers.
