Join a program that focuses on teaching in partnership with students, families, and communities.

Building a Community

The MiT program is unique in the region because of its focus on mentorship. With a mentor network that includes your faculty, cohort members, endorsement groups, mentor teachers, and community mentors, you will have much support as you go forward to build classrooms of joy and justice. You will meet regularly with an MiT faculty member and other faculty and staff in the program; participate in panel discussions and workshops with community and teacher mentors; and have opportunities to plan and reflect with your colleagues in the program.
