BioMy name is Michelle Roberts and I work with the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program at MSU. The MAT Program is an alternative certification program developed to help Kentucky schools fill high need teaching vacancies. I have worked with the program for the past six years and thoroughly enjoy helping MAT students transition into teaching, often times from years of work in other fields. Having been a past educator I certainly understand the demands and fears new teachers are faced with every day. Working with such a special and unique program at MSU allows me to conquer those fears for incoming non-traditional students, and help them to develop the necessary skills and experiences to become great teachers in Kentucky.
