Elementary Teaching Internship
Your undergraduate courses are loaded with opportunities to observe master teachers, practice teaching your peers, and teach lessons at Pensacola Christian Academy. They’ll do a phenomenal job preparing you for a successful teaching career. However, your senior Elementary Teaching Internship (EE 420) will give you the ultimate real-world experience: leading your very own elementary school class.
You’ll spend a complete semester in a PCA classroom. There, a knowledgeable teacher will mentor you, help you refine your skills, answer your questions, give you ideas, and work with you as a genuine teammate. You’ll participate in orientation day, parent-teacher meetings, school events, classroom management, and all aspects of teaching. One subject at a time, you’ll take over teaching responsibilities—eventually taking full responsibility of the entire class.
After you finish your internship, you’ll never have to fear the “first day on the job” feeling. You’ll start your career as an experienced teacher: confident, highly skilled, and ready for whatever comes your way.
