Enrollment in the Arizona Teachers Academy more than doubled in its first two years, from 221 students to more than 450 students in the last school year. Each university offers its own version of the academy. The University of Arizona College of Education has two, one-year master’s degree programs. Lorraine Rivera sat down with a former and current student of the academy to learn more about their experiences. Caitlin Brenton received her master’s degree in May and will teach science at Flowing Wells Middle School. Chauna Mae began her coursework this summer and expects to graduate next May. She plans to teach special education in the Marana Unified School District.
