Full internship description and details:

The Pre-Teaching 2016 fall term internship at Centennial Academy, a K-8 problem-based learning (PBL) charter school in Atlanta Public Schools, will support the implementation of PBL in a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) environment. The intern will support PBL Core Teachers in various grade levels (especially grades 3, 5 and 7). 

The goal of the internship is to help students explore teaching as a possible career path more fully and in a deeply engaged way.  Experiential learning such as an internship can help you discover if a particular profession is (1) a good fit for you, (2) not a good fit for you or (3) something you want to continue to explore after the experience.   

Location of Centennial Academy: 531 Luckie Street, Atlanta, GA  30313  (walking distance from Georgia Tech)
