Teaching isn’t just a profession, it’s an art form.
A good teacher is as skilled at a difficult, rewarding and beautiful craft as a noted sculptor, a concert pianist or a professional ballerina. Teaching takes perseverance, it takes skill, and it takes practice. Lots of practice. That’s why our master of arts in teaching program stresses theory and the application of knowledge, and prepares teachers for all the challenges of leading a classroom.
