You will develop fundamental teaching and classroom skills during the internship and learn about the responsibilities of being a teacher. You will also learn about the additional responsibilities of being a teacher.

The Innovation Lab

Opened in the fall of 2015, the Middle School Innovation Lab is designed to support Westminster’s commitment to integrated studies, particularly in the STEAM disciplines.
