MAE: Internship Experience

Master of Arts in Education Preparation Field Experiences
ED 609: Teaching Internship

The capstone field experience of the MAE Program, and the most vital component in producing teachers who can function competently in a classroom, is the internship experience.

The internship allows for a prolonged period of time in the classroom, observing master teachers and honing teaching skills and style. The teaching intern has earned an academic degree and has experienced an orientation to teaching through exploratory field experiences, clinical field experiences, and field experiences in Management of Instruction.

Each intern, regardless of the internship model (one public school semester or one academic year [with prior approval of the Education Department Chair]), has a substitute teaching certificate (if interning in Missouri).

The care and concern that my professors have for their students is the best part of classes here. They come to class every day truly excited to teach their subject.
