My experience


Fleshed out curriculum to teach core subjects to middle schoolers two classes a day, built extracurricular class from scratch, supervised students during breaks and activities

This was a really challenging internship that was really rewarding and I'm so glad I did it. It's a great way to dip your foot in the water of teaching, with tiny class sizes (mine were 5-7 kids) and solid support dedicated to helping you succeed. It's a LOT of work, though, with high pressure to do right by these kids, and low pay (barely living expenses). You have to be dedicated to making this the center of your entire life for the summer.

Would recommend it to people who...

Are creative and enjoy working with kids

Would NOT recommend it to people who...

Aren't willing to seriously challenge themselves and work hard (7+ hours onsite followed by hours of take home work)
