INTERNSHIP Program

The Learning Project’s Teacher Training Internship Program provides a rich opportunity for six beginning teachers to train directly with experienced mentor teachers and to develop their own teaching skills by working daily in the classroom. Interns have two different classroom placements over the course of the year and they are considered an integral part of the classroom team and of the school. Interns are given significant, independent responsibility, as well as substantial guidance and support. There is a carefully outlined “progression” of responsibilities each Intern is expected to fulfill during each placement, culminating in a take-over week where Interns switch places with the Classroom Head. Interns meet weekly with their mentor teachers and also as a cohort in seminar with the Director of Admissions and Coordinator of Programs to learn about teaching techniques and to discuss their classroom experience. Interns also supervise children in the After School Program.

In recent years, many of our Interns have entered into the Program directly after college and with an interest in exploring teaching as a career. Others have come after several years in different professions. Still others have joined while doing work on a M.Ed. degree, and many have used their placement to meet student teaching requirements.

Compensation

Interns receive a medical benefit (90%) plus a $26,000 yearly stipend, paid monthly from September to June.
