The Teacher Education program at Rice University offers an opportunity for experienced teachers to earn their Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT). Designed for those who have already been teaching in the classroom, the MAT for Experienced Teachers provides professional education courses that address the advanced needs of these seasoned educators. We recently had the opportunity to visit some of the current MAT for Experienced Teachers students in their classrooms and asked them to share their perspectives and experiences in the program. Paul Provence has been teaching for nine years and enjoys his current position teaching at the YES Prep North Forest campus. He decided to enroll in the MAT program to enhance his knowledge of student-centered, inquiry-based learning.

This is a video testimonial of Paul Provence, a teacher intern at YES Prep North Forest regarding his experience in the Master of Arts in Teaching for Experienced Teachers program.

Gerald Thurmond has been teaching for 22 years and decided to enroll in the MAT program to increase his pedagogical knowledge and to effectively incorporate technology in his lesson plans, something that was not covered when he was earning his first degree.

This is a video testimonial of Gerald Thurmond, a teacher intern in our Master of Arts in Teaching for Experienced Teachers program. He discusses his reasons for earning a Master's degree and his experiences with the MAT program.
