Middle Level Education Program
Middle Level Internship Information
The student teaching internship constitutes the culminating experience for students on the journey of becoming a teacher. A student in an internship learns, through hands-on experience, the complexities of the teaching role under the guidance of a mentor teacher(s). The semester-long experience, beginning in early January and ending in early May, provides interns with opportunity for continuous contact with the same group of learners, public school teachers and support personnel so that the intern can demonstrate ability to "teach for understanding for all learners." UVM interns also play important roles in enhancing the learning of individual students and contribute to the professional development goals within the school. With the careful guidance of the mentor teacher and the UVM supervisor, interns often reflect that they have been transformed from student to professional colleague during the course of the internship. Successful completion of this internship qualifies the student for a Vermont Level I Teaching License.
