Why Hire an MRTP Graduate?

MRTP graduates stand out because of the tremendous learning opportunities and field experience they have engaged in while completing MSU's Department of Education Master of Arts in Teaching educator preparation program.

The degree program emphasizes the strengths and assets of rural communities. This positions MRTP graduates to be ready on Day 1 to teach in Montana's rural schools. 

Additionally, the Montana Rural Teacher Project provides two years of mentorship and support for graduates as they enter the teaching profession. 

Our partnership with education groups around the state provides ongoing professional learning and development to support MRTP graduates, the school leaders who supervise them, and the districts in which they teach.
