Internships and Career Preparation

Real-world skills.
Real-world ready.

We value hands-on experience so much that all students complete at least one internship, and it’s not uncommon for our ambitious students to do two or even three internships. Not only does this in-the-field experience enrich your classroom learning, but it also gives you an edge in a competitive job market.

An advocate for all students:
Valencia's Story

As an education major Valencia Griffin was drawn to teaching because she wants to be an advocate for all of her students.

“I want to be the teacher that students confide in and trust, and who helps the students master what they need to learn in order to be successful,” she says. “I want students to stand up for themselves and know they are the getting the best education.”

Griffin knows she’ll be ready to take the lead in her own classroom thanks to plenty of hands-on experience in her field.

“When I leave vnsr威尼斯城官网登入, I’ll know how to teach in person and how to teach virtually,” she says. “I have taught in low-income communities and my next placement is in a suburban community. I’ve taught in Catholic schools and a bilingual school.”

Not only has she gained experience in wide variety of school settings, but she has also formed a close and inspiring connection with the classroom teacher she has worked with at her most recent placement, Greenfield Bilingual School.

“She has taught me so much, the things you don’t learn in the classroom but learn on the job,” Griffin says.
