When I was a student at MSU Denver, I was extremely impressed with the quality of professors that I had in the Physical Education department. They were always there to answer my questions and they did a great job preparing me for the real world when I got my first job. They were always there for me when I needed assistance.
Physical Education Teacher
Teaching kindergarten in a Title I school with a large population of language learners comes with challenges, but I feel well prepared after graduating from MSU Denver's M.A.T. program. My education was so connected to what I now experience on a daily basis; I am still reflecting on coursework and conversations with professors to help me think about my teaching approach every single day.

MSU Denver allows you to be who you are and gives you the wings to enjoy the journey while embracing that journey with a diverse community of people from all walks of life who will someday 'make the difference' in a child’s life by teaching, inspiring and motivating.
MSU Denver Elementary Education alum
I was instructed in the VALUE of empathy and the enormous impact everything we do or say in the classroom has on our students. MSU instilled in me a selfless desire to improve the lives of my students, and for that I am eternally grateful.
Secondary English Teacher
All of my professors were not only able but willing to work with me on an individual basis. When it was time for me to do my student teaching I felt like I had someone else in my corner to support me and help me outside of the classroom.
Secondary Social Studies Teacher
MSU Denver gave me the confidence to excel in such an amazing, rewarding profession.
Physical Education Teacher, 2014 Colorado Teacher of the Year
MSU Denver had a great reputation and we had expert teachers teaching us. Out of the 25 students who were part of my special education cohort, all of them stayed teachers – it says a lot for the support and instruction we received.
Alternative Licensure Program and Master of Arts in Teaching Alum, 2014
The Art Education Program at MSU Denver prepared me in a way that I believe no other program could. The rigor and individualized feedback provided me with necessary tools to successfully teach in the art classroom.
I enjoyed meeting and working with everyone I came in contact with throughout my years at MSU Denver. I thrived in being immersed in the school setting during the field practicum and student teaching experiences since it was hands-on learning. I am proud of the solid education I earned at MSU Denver.
