Recent Master of Arts in Teaching + Teaching Credential (MAT) graduates Katiana Harvey and Devon Zangger returned to the School of Education to host a brownbag lunch discussion for recently-enrolled MAT students.
Both teachers, who completed their MAT + Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at UCI in 2017, have been hired by schools in the Irvine Unified School District. Katiana is teaching fifth grade at Canyon View Elementary, where the principal is UCI graduate Christina Giguiere. Devon is teaching fourth grade at College Park Elementary.
The noontime discussion included information about balancing multiple tasks while in the program (course work, student teaching, job search), maximizing student teaching experiences, and identifying and negotiating employment opportunities.
