My first month of teaching

Elizabeth Egan, MAT'15, shares her thoughts about her first month as a high school teacher. Elizabeth currently teaches chemistry in Boston, MA.

My first month of teaching has been wonderful, and I have you and the MAT program to thank! I have felt extremely prepared to handle everything that has come my way. It has not by any stretch been a walk in the park, but I haven't felt panicked at all. It is almost as if I don't have to think about what to do next because I already know, I've practiced or discussed it so many times. I definitely still have a lot a lot to learn, but I have the framework on which to build. I supposed this is what it would feel like to have very successfully trained for a marathon or some other large athletic feat. So, thank you!
