Hello all! I'm very excited to announce that I will be receiving my first intern in the fall. I'd like to hear from any teachers who have had wonderful or not so wonderful internship experiences. What did you love about your internship and cooperating teacher? -or- What did you wish the cooperating teacher did differently? I'm not looking for horror stories or anything but just some good, quality suggestions. Here are some things that I'm already planning: 1. Send an introduction email and invite intern to lunch for a casual get-to-know-you meeting. 2. Get intern a school ID badge and spirit shirt. 3. Invite intern to help set up the classroom. 4. Give intern a small welcome gift of supplies like markers, post-its, clipboard, etc. 5. At the end of the year, ask students to purchase a new book for the intern to help her build her classroom library for whatever grade level she wishes to teach. I'd love to hear your ideas! Thanks!
