Sarah Tomco is currently interning at Springville Jr. High as a teacher’s aide. She contributes to her classes by helping students with their assignments, running errands for the teachers, and adding to the class discussions. Sometimes, she gets to plan and teach the entire lesson.
Tomco shared some of the reasons why she loves this internship, “I have always loved literature and I have always loved teaching. I love helping students understand something they struggle with,” said Tomco.
She expressed her interest in this line of work by revealing her passion for English, even though over time it may fade. Her opinion on teaching is very strong, “My passion for teaching will never fade. Sharing my knowledge and teaching students to question everything and seek for truth will never lose its value,” said Tomco.
This internship has provided her with fun, hands on experiences in the classroom. She was able to prepare and present a lesson based around “the balcony scene” in Romeo and Juliet.
Tomco said, “I had so much fun planning the lesson and talking to the kids. I think they sensed my enthusiasm and confidence which, in turn, increased their enthusiasm.”
Tomco wishes to further her education and study English at Brigham Young University.
The internship proved to be very beneficial to Tomco, she said, “I would definitely recommend it. I have gained confidence in my abilities and learned how to work and be an employee in a low-stakes setting. It’s a fantastic opportunity.”
So take Tomco’s word and sign up for an internship at Springville High. If you’re interested in the internship program, please contact Mrs. Robyn Dunn, Worked-based Learning Coordinator, Springville High, (801) 489-2870 or email@example.com.
