If you are recognized as an excellent teacher in Rhode Island, you may be able to earn some public recognition, as well as a significant bonus. The state of Rhode Island has four teacher recognition awards, and though you don't have to have a master's degree to win any of them, commitment to professional development is one variable judges consider when determining award recipients. Teachers with master's degrees in Rhode Island can also more easily earn the title of mentor teacher, allowing them to help new teachers understand the role. Of course, most teachers go into education for the students and improving knowledge through a master's degree also means improving effectiveness in the classroom.
The master's of education in teaching and learning at Providence's Johnson and Wales University is a two-year program designed to help teachers apply education theory. Students can try out the program by taking one class before enrolling in the entire program. Providence College, another school in the state's capital, is a Catholic college with a number of master's in education programs. These include master's programs in literacy, special education, and administration. Students looking for more traditional programs in Providence can look into Rhode Island College, which has master's of education programs in elementary education and early childhood education, as well as more specialized programs like music and urban education.
