UNK students working toward their teaching degree will have the opportunity to work with experienced teachers in a new summer school program as part of a paid internship. Lexington Public Schools will be holding two summer school sessions for grades Kindergarten through fourth grade in June and July.
This summer, students will be working under the supervision of a master teacher from Lexington Public Schools who will assist them in lesson planning, classroom management and teaching strategies while working with a classroom full of students and being paid to do it.
The opportunities to be a paid student teacher are few and far between in Nebraska, but the benefits this new program offers are greater than just the money. “This is a great learning experience for our young students. It gives them the chance to see what it’s like before their actual student teaching begins,” said Ann Knipping, director of field experience and lecturer for teacher education.
The College of Education is hoping to make this first year for the program a success. They are encouraging students who have been admitted to the UNK Teacher Education Program to respond to this unique opportunity.
