Dear MST Graduates,
Congratulations on your graduation from Teachers College! On behalf of all of the MST faculty and staff, I extend our very best wishes to you. We've enjoyed getting to know you during your time at TC, and are so proud of you for all of your accomplishments! It’s been a challenging year – we’ve missed being able to get together in person and I don’t think anyone expected that we would spend a whole academic year in virtual, remote learning mode. But it’s our pleasure to “see” you on Zoom in our classes, colloquia, meet-ups, lab meetings, office hours, and social gatherings.
While we aren't able to share our congratulations with you in person this April, we look forward to welcoming you back to MST and TC events in the future, one day soon – hopefully!—in person. As you can see from this gallery, you and your peers have done amazing work at TC, and we are always happy to learn with and from our terrific MST students. We know that in times of difficulty and upheaval in the world, our MST students, faculty, staff, and alumni are always striving to make things better. Thank you for spending part of your lives with us in the CMLTD suite, the Science Education corridor, and the Program in Mathematics offices. Please keep in touch with us; we always want to hear from our alumni!
Congratulations on your accomplishments and good luck with your next journey.
Congrats everyone! What a crazy and challenging year it's been. We missed having you here on campus with us this year but we are so proud of what you've accomplished--especially under the circumstances! Well done!
It goes without saying that this year has been one of constant challenges. It's revealed a lot about the world around us for sure, but also - I think - it's revealed a lot about ourselves. I've been constantly amazed, impressed, and heartened by how you'all dedicated yourselves to the work, how you supported each other, and how you brought such positivity to the things we do. Working with you all really helped me make it through this past year and while once is enough for an experience like this... there were also shining moments that I won't forget. Thanks students. Congratulations to graduates of 2021. Go on and continue doing great things.
Congratulations on this wonderful milestone! You have accomplished so much at TC. This year was challenging -- yet you rose to the challenge and overcame distance, Zoom/internet challenges, time zone coordination and many other kinds of adversity. We really appreciate all your hard work, creative energy, insights and many contributions -- and your smiles and unique personalities will stay in our memories. I can't wait to see what you will accomplish and where you go from here!
Students, Congratulations on reaching this milestone. I know it hasn't been easy and I know you must be tired -- you've been working so hard and this past year has been unforgiving on so many different levels (my own Zoom background has been the "this is fine" dog-in-a-burning-house meme for most of the year). This is a time to look back and be proud of who you are and all that you've achieved. You deserve to see your dreams come true. And knowing you, I'm confident that they will. Congratulations, graduates!
Quoting A.A. Milne, the author of the famous children's book Winnie the Pooh, "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think!" You have competed your graduate degree in the midst of the largest world health crisis - you can do anything you set your mind to! Congratulations, class of 2021! We are so proud of you and are looking forward to your new accomplishments!
As we’ve learned this year, everything requires perseverance. Teaching is harder than you can imagine, but so much better than you can predict. As the Mars rover, named for our experience, currently sends us amazing data, remember the long journey it took to reach its desired destination! Please think of us and know we are here for you, as you begin exploring new frontiers on your journey. Be a rainbow in someone’s cloud! There is a light don’t let it go out.
Congratulations graduates! Getting through all the readings, assignments, courses, papers, dissertation defenses, student teaching, etc. of a degree program is always an accomplishment; with the craziness and uncertainty of pandemic-life and online learning, it is all more significant! I send my heartiest well-wishes for what comes next in your journey, knowing that you will take many of the ideas and experiences from your time at Teachers College and use them to change the world; one student, one colleague, one person at a time. But for now, enjoy an opportunity to celebrate all you have accomplished and learned along the way. Cheers!
To our student teachers who are graduating, You’ve succeeded in a year of opportunity and challenge at Teachers College. Now, as you leave us and enter your own classrooms in the fall, Do so with confidence, for you have prepared yourselves well. Best to you and your classmates on this joyous occasion.
A heartfelt congratulations to our wonderful Program in Mathematics and MST graduates of 2021! Completing a rigorous program during unprecedented times may be one of the hardest things you’ve had to do. You persevered and excelled!

Now that you’re prepared, the real work begins, contributing to the future of STEM education. You got this! With pride and joy I wish you phenomenal success and Mazal tov!
