“I absolutely loved this internship! I loved the hands on experience in lesson planning, teaching, and the overall environment. The administration was incredible and extremely supportive! The staff overall was very close and supportive of each other, and we often collaborated on projects and problems. The kids were amazing and engaged in the content, which grew my passion for education every day I was with them. The experience I gained from working with them gave me valuable experience that I use in my teaching every day and the confidence in myself to be the best teacher I can be. ”
