Year Long Internships

Lesley has developed year-long internships with several schools in Cambridge and Newton. Students in these internships commit to spending the full academic year (September–June) in the schools and are paid a stipend for their work. These placements provide immersion in a collaborative teaching relationship with excellent classroom teachers, as well as the opportunity to participate in all aspects of school and classroom life such as faculty meetings, parent meetings, and ongoing professional development. Pre-practicum and practicum and seminar requirements can be met during this year-long experience. Students need to complete an application process through the Field Placement Office and meet all other program pre-requisites in order to be approved for an internship.
