EASTCONN Where Learning Comes to Life

EASTCONN Brings CCSU Master’s Program to Quiet Corner Teachers

In collaboration with EASTCONN, Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) will offer a new, one-year, Hampton-based 

Master’s in Teacher Leadership program for northeastern Connecticut’s early-career educators, starting May 28, 2019. 

The master’s classes will meet throughout the year both online and at EASTCONN’s Conference Center, 376 Hartford Turnpike, Hampton. Meeting times will be announced at a later date. The application deadline is May 1, 2019. 

“This CCSU master’s program will focus on leadership topics that are of specific interest to educators in northeastern Connecticut’s small districts, allowing them to focus on regionally relevant topics such as restorative practices, trauma-informed education, and social-emotional learning, in addition to other considerations, like our growing English-learner population,” said CCSU Professor Dr. Kurt Love, who teaches in the program.

“This master’s program will prepare early-career teachers for the unique challenges they may meet, ultimately benefiting their schools, their students and their communities,” said Dr. Olusegun Sogunro, CCSU’s MS Program Coordinator.

 The new master’s program meets Connecticut State Department of Education requirements for early-career educators, who must be enrolled in and complete a planned master’s program in order to advance toward their provisional educator certificate.

“The partnership between EASTCONN and CCSU brings CCSU’s highly regarded master’s program into the Quiet Corner’s backyard, creating easier access for teachers who want to advance their learning and their careers,” said Dr. Sheldon Watson, Chair-Elect of CCSU’s Department of Educational Leadership, Policy and Instructional Technology.
