They may not know it yet, but McGill’s student teachers are getting a big boost from a kindred spirit.

The late Mary Marsh, DipEd’42, a Grade 1 teacher at Rosedale School in Montreal for most of her career, has left more than $4.8 million in her will to support students in the Faculty of Education through a suite of awards – an investment that couldn’t have come at a better time for a profession deeply marked by the pandemic.

A new partnership between McGill’s Faculty of Education and Trafalgar School for Girls – known as the CoLab – aims to advance collaborative research that will address the evolving needs of both educators and students. Unlike traditional laboratory schools at Oxford, Columbia, UCLA and the University of Chicago, which operate as an adjunct to a university, this new venture will be a true partnership, the first of its kind in Canada.

For fourth-year B.Ed. students approaching the end of their programs, knowing what path to take after graduation can be challenging. Whereas many B.Ed. grads are eager to pursue careers in teaching, training, pedagogy, youth programming, or other employment sectors, others may not feel ready to join the job market just yet. Some students may want to broaden their knowledge and skillsets, become more specialized, or expand their career opportunities.
