What’s going on? We’d love to hear how your internship is going! I have been teaching 22 incredibly smart, motivated, and determined 6th graders English Language Arts! Their creativity and intelligence makes me smile everyday and I am touched by their commitment to their education. They are all going to be the first in their families to go to college, and it is an honor to have this role in their journeys!

How I heard about my internship: I found out about this opportunity from the Teach for America website!

Why I applied for my internship: Education is my passion; I believe that every child deserves a quality education, regardless of their social economic status. Breakthrough reaches these underserved populations and has specialized programs that support students from the moment they start 6th grade until they graduate. Being a first generation student myself, I wanted to give back and help students reach the same opportunities I have been fortunate enough to have.
