Teacher Intern (leading to certtification) Job Listing at Upper Valley Teacher Institute in Lebanon, NH
UVEI offers a 10-month teacher preparation program leading to certification. A typical internship begins in mid-August with orientation and ends in June. The Upper Valley Educators Institute offers an accredited teacher preparation and certification program, based in actual school classrooms and designed for adult college graduates who have usually had other careers before deciding to become teachers.
UVEI differs from most traditional university programs in teacher education. Since teaching is an art best learned through practice, UVEI reverses the percentage of time normally allotted to academic theory (80%) and classroom practice (20%). With us, it's 80% practice, 20% theory. Each intern spends four days a week, full time, in a classroom under the supervision of a mentor teacher. Interns come to our Institute in Lebanon, NH, one day a week for seminars. Here they learn about teaching, learning, how the brain develops, how to create curriculum that kids really engage in, and how to assess student work, among other skills. UVEI interns also are trained in the latest educational technology, so that they and their students can fully utilize web networking possibilities.
UVEI's two-semester practicum focuses on the mastery of 10 teaching competencies, each to be demonstrated by the intern at the level expected of a beginning teacher. That is how interns graduate from the program and receive certification. No exams or other end-game rituals are required, aside from the Praxis exams stipulated by the various states. During the year, interns prepare several "PDPs" (Professional Development Products), such as a philosophy of education statement, student observations, curriculum unit designs and lesson plans-but each is geared to what the intern will be able to utilize in an actual school and classroom setting. In addition, each intern prepares a digital portfolio-a collection of evidence that the competencies are being met. This portfolio allows interns to share the essence of their accomplishments as part of their career search for a teaching position.
