Congratulations, Class of 2020!

Dear Class of 2020,

We are writing to congratulate and celebrate you! We wish that we could extend these sincere wishes in person.

We want to acknowledge your remarkable adaptability; your resilience; and your demonstrated commitment to learners, to teaching, and to your own learning over the course of the program and particularly throughout the final semester.

There has been a great deal of discussion this year around what it means to graduate at this extraordinary moment. As educators, your work is uniquely, critically and centrally important at this time. As we think of the changes and contributions that you will make as adaptive, skilled, compassionate teacher scholars committed to equity and anti-racist education, we are very hopeful and very grateful. 

It has been a genuine gift to learn with and from you over the program. We wish health, fulfillment, and continued growth and learning for you. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you!

Best wishes and congratulations,

The MT Community


MT Leadership Statement on the Current Political Context

This statement was shared with the MT Community on June 3, 2020 following the murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020

As the Master of Teaching Program leadership team, we want to express our respect and admiration to those struggling against anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism in Canada, the US and countries around the world. Although the systemic and brutal nature of white supremacy is not new, the current moment of widespread uprising and repression has been a real-time trauma for many Black people. To Black students, staff and faculty in the Master of Teaching Program, we know that many of you are suffering right now, and that this is a time of significant pain.
