“Some people are called to teaching. They have known for a long time, even since childhood, that teaching is where they belong. Others don’t discover teaching until much later, perhaps not until after they have tried a number of paths, or have found themselves on no path at all. But then, at some point, something clicks, and they say, ‘Yes. I need to teach. I have something to give as a teacher.’ "
“The Brandeis MAT welcomes your interest, whether you are a recent BA or a career-changer, someone who has known “forever” that teaching is for you or someone who is just now thinking about this enormously important, challenging, and rewarding profession."
“Teaching will test you. Sometimes it will make your head hurt. But sometimes it will make your heart soar, and sometimes it will give you the chance to see the world, or a subject matter you love, in a whole new way. It allows you to continue growing. Above all, it allows you to make a difference in young people’s lives, day in and day out."
“Come visit. If teaching is for you, maybe you should work with us.”
