In Focus

Voices From the Field
A few MAT candidates reflect on the importance of their student teaching experiences.

Kate Goldberg
As an American Studies major in college, I am keenly aware of institutions that often reproduce current societal hierarchies, such as our education system, and consequently, I wanted to be a part of a team that was actively working to fight against these structures. Throughout my time as a History teacher in my placement, at Somerville High School, I have constantly asked myself what I want my students to know, why I want my students to know it, and how they will learn it, which are questions I would not have asked had it not been for the Tufts MAT program.
