Hello Everyone, I just came across these forums and have been addicted ever since. There is so much valuable information in here! I thought this would be a good place to get some advice! I'm a little more than halfway through my credential program and I was contacted about an internship for a 5th Grade teaching position. Someone from my credential program recommended me and the school's superintendent/principal called me on Wednesday to schedule an interview for Monday. She said the teacher they have now has to move within two weeks because of a family emergency, so they need a new teacher immediately. She said she was interested in having an intern rather than a fully credentialed teacher who had already been passed over this year, so it seems like I may even have a chance at the position! Yay! (This would be awesome because it would take the place of my student teaching requirement (saving me $$$) and I would be getting paid!) Everything about the position sounds ideal for a beginning teacher. It's a small school with a small class size, only 14 students, it's such a great opportunity for being involved in a nice school community! I am so excited and nervous about this opportunity. Does anyone have any advice on things that may come up in the interview? Also, what are some of the best and worst things about the curriculum in 5th grade, in your own opinion? Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
