Teaching Internship at UTD
A Teaching Internship is an opportunity for highly qualified students. Students will complete a university-supervised internship as a fully employed first-year teacher for one academic year in a local public school. Internships are completed in cooperation with an accredited public school which will provide a mentoring teacher during the internship year. This cooperative partnership between UTD and the public schools represents the practical application of the teaching/learning process.
