Evergreen’s nationally recognized Master in Teaching (MiT) program is more than just a means to certification. It is an academically rigorous program that provides an opportunity to question one's own knowledge and perceptions, gain a broader and deeper understanding about the diverse cultures that comprise our society, and develop new understandings about teaching and learning. Prospective teachers gain the knowledge and skills to create learning environments that support student engagement and achievement, as well as the possibility for a more just and equitable society. MiT students are provided with multiple opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills both on campus and in public school placements, as well as the support to grow personally and professionally. In a world that is becoming more diverse and complex each day, public education can play a key role in nurturing and educating citizens who care about equity and justice for all beings.
