Selah Agaba presenting her research
The Master of Art in Teaching (MAT) program held its research presentations and graduation celebration at the Hassenfeld Conference Center on July 20. The 27 graduates comprising the class of 2012 presented findings from their original classroom-based research, and were honored in a ceremony during which each student was individually recognized. One of the graduates, Selah Agaba, is originally from Uganda. She joined the program as part of the public elementary concentration. Her research presentation was entitled, “Will You Visit Our Class? Opening the Classroom Door to Racially, Linguistically and Socially Diverse Parents.” While she will be entering a doctoral program, most of the MAT graduates are going on to teach in public or Jewish day elementary, middle and high schools.
