  • Class Year2019

  • DegreeMaster of Arts in Teaching

Maria, who attended College of the Atlantic in Maine before enrolling in Loyola’s Master of Arts in Teaching program, teaches grades 6-8 at Regional Institute for Children and Adolescents in Baltimore County. Maria chose Loyola for her graduate program in education because she “loved the equity work that many of Loyola’s professors were involved withand I knew I wanted to be part of something that was changing education and ensuring it was available and accessible to everyone.” Over the next few years, Maria plans to focus on becoming more familiar with the curriculum and with how to share it with students and make it more accessible. Maria found Loyola’s MAT program challenging and rewarding. “My professors were always willing to answer questions and step in to help. They listened to our struggles, to our frustrations, and celebrated all our successes. If I had to go back, I would choose the program again. I plan on continuing my education through Loyola because of the amazing support I had,” says Maria.

The values of the Jesuits when it comes to education shapes Loyola’s program. It was a big influence on teaching candidates to respond to the individual student, to be driven by their needs.
