What is the Process?

Following contact with CSDR by the University Internship Supervisor, the intern submits a resume and letter of interest. Elementary interns must teach in all subject areas while middle school and high school interns typically teach in a single subject area. All intern applicants are interviewed by a supervisor and placement is determined by the results of the interview, as well as the availability of tenured master teachers. The intern and University will be notified shortly following the interview process.
