If you have questions about Whitworth's Master in Teaching, or if you would like to sit in on a class, please contact the MIT advisor at 509.777.3769 (Spokane).

"Before I started the MIT program, I was a volunteer and then substitute teacher for Spokane Public Schools. Volunteering and substituting simply assured me that I belonged in the classroom. I loved that at Whitworth I could get my MIT in just 13 months; it allows you to take courses, student teach, and still be there for your family."

Maritza Cardona, ‘20, Kindergarten Teacher at Madison Elementary – Spokane Public Schools

"Student-teaching for a full year enabled me to see the entire process -- setting up the classroom, running the first day, parent-teacher conferences, field trips -- through the end of the year."

Megan Fraser Central Valley School District

"Many districts in our area hire Whitworth MIT grads because they see them as a second year teacher and are more prepared than other candidates. Compared to other programs, Whitworth’s MIT program keeps cohorts smaller, giving every candidate more support to be successful."

Nathan Clayton, ’21
