With an internship I would finish my third semester of classes in the summer (instead of taking no classes) then instead of student teaching the fourth semester I would teach for a year earning half salary and benefits. This would be awesome because
Yesterday the Vice Principal (VP) at the school we are doing our field experience at asked my teaching partner and I if we were hoping for an internship next year. My partner said YES! and the VP followed up with, "Well, we think you two are doing a good job, so don't blow the interview."
UVU, the university I attend, has no say in who gets to do the internship. This means I can't ride on the fact that some of my teachers might find me wonderful (dang it... all that brown nosing for nothing). It all comes down to an interview with the district... I am going to start practising ....
"You want to choose ME for the internship because...."
The thing I have a hard time with, is that if I get hired that means I was chosen and my other classmates weren't.
