To this end, opportunities are provided for aspiring teachers, nurses, guidance counselors, and special educators to interact with our talented and experienced teaching team. MCCPS enjoys a dynamic, reform-minded staff that values student-centered, minds-on, standards-driven, integrated instruction.

Interns will meet with the school's administration to determine the appropriate topic for the class(es) they will teach. Topics may vary greatly depending upon the interns' abilities, interests, and career aspirations. Observation, discussion, and experimentation will be regular components of each intern’s experience. Training will include backwards design, lesson planning, assessment, and classroom management. Support for the interns will be provided before and throughout the internship, and each intern’s performance will be evaluated at the end of the term. Upon successful completion of the internship a letter of recommendation will be provided.
Interns may choose the term of the internship (September – November, December – March, or March – June) and the day on which they teach (must be the same day of the week for the term) and the grade(s) with which they work (4th-8th). Requirements: Interns must be at least 18 years old and enrolled in a teacher preparation program. Interns must be reliable, organized, detail-oriented, and available from 2:00-4:00 each day of the internship.
