“The MAT@USC has absolutely inspired me to not only get into those classrooms and do the best that I can do, but constantly improve that experience. It’s been extremely challenging, but every bit of it has helped make me a better teacher.”
– Jay Garrett, MAT@USC Graduate
“The best part about the MAT@USC is being able to reflect on my own teaching. Being able to see myself actually teaching a lesson and being able to reflect on ‘Where did I go wrong?' ‘What can I improve upon?’ And, that’s something that I think I wouldn’t have been able to get anywhere else.”
– Marybel Marcelli, MAT@USC Graduate
