What drew you to OISE’s program?
After being an English teacher for 6 years in China, I started to have strong curiosity in school environment, teaching methods and teachers’ values in developed countries. Apparently, OISE is one of the top educational institutions in the world and Master of Teaching program provides four practicums that can help me experience real classes in Canada. More importantly, MT program offers students teaching certificates after graduation.
What did you love about the program and/or your professors and peers?
This program teaches me not only theories, but also practical teaching strategies! Professors are knowledgeable, encouraging, and caring. They try their best to fulfill our potential! Peers are excellent, kind and helpful! I learned from them and gained help from them! As an ELL student, I feel our community is very inclusive!
What did you learn about yourself at OISE?
Before I came to OISE, I knew I was passionate about being a good teacher! Now, after I learned how to write research papers and how to search the resources, there is a whole new world in front of me! I can hear the voices of great minds in education area! Nothing can make me happier when I read different opinions from expertises arguing the topics that I am interested in!
