In my internship, I was a Student Teacher at Allen Park Elementary School in (Fort Myers) two days/week for 12 weeks, in a Grade 3 classroom. To prepare for each week, I wrote and conducted a few lesson plans. I assisted the classroom teacher with anything she needed and acted as her shadow, observing her while she completed everyday teacher duties. I was able to attend planning meetings and observe other teachers in different grades/subject areas. Throughout the internship, I learned and experienced firsthand the importance of developing relationships with students, catering to their needs, and fostering their passions! Because of this internship, I have grown professionally and have begun preparing myself for my career after graduation in May 2022! ”
Conducting an internship at the Collier County Department of Health for the Summer 2021 term allowed me to engage in the public health sector. Working on the 2019-2020 Biannual Report allowed me to obtain knowledge of the different departments such as Women's health, but it also helped to aid in my critical thinking skills, time-management skills, as well as allowed me to use the knowledge gained from my courses in Public Health. Doing my internship with the Collier County Department of Health showed me just how varied but unified the public health field is and definitely peaked my interest in working with a well-coordinated team as such. ”
I am incredibly thankful for this internship opportunity that helped me grow my skills in my journey to become a broadcast journalist. The internship and my class have shaped my experience at FGCU. I cannot emphasize how much I’ve changed since the start of the semester— academically and personally! I’m happy I can develop my best career self through a wonderful program at FGCU that fosters growth and mentorship. ”
