First cohort graduates from new Master of Science for Teaching program

August 22, 2016

The School of Education on Aug. 4 graduated its first cohort of students from UW-Madison’s new Master of Science for Teaching program, which includes secondary teaching and ESL certification.

The day began with the finals conference at which students shared their master’s projects with their peers, program faculty and visitors. Each of the content-area cohorts (science, math, English and social studies) displayed and/or discussed the findings from their master’s papers in group poster sessions.

These sharing sessions were scheduled around faculty, staff and visitor presentations on topics such as democratic educational reforms, culturally sustaining pedagogy for immigrant youth, best practices in establishing community partnerships, and other topics of interest to new teachers.

School of Education Dean Diana Hess led one of the program’s more well attended sessions on teacher disclosure of their views on controversial political topics.

The conference was followed by a dinner and graduation ceremony in the Alumni Lounge at the Pyle Center on Lake Mendota. The program was emceed by Joey Lubasi, and Hess delivered a heartfelt keynote welcoming graduates to the teaching profession.

Congratulations to all of our new teachers! And remember: You may no longer be a student, but you’ll always be a Badger!
