Every year, we are thrilled to welcome a new cohort of International Interns to our schools. Most of our interns come to us from the Amity Institute. Amity Institute’s Educational Internship Program provides future educators from other countries the opportunity to gain teaching skills under the direct supervision of a certified teacher in an American classroom. In addition, interns often serve as living models of language and culture. Our interns offer a native perspective on their language, culture and country, enabling their students to better understand and appreciate the languages they study.
Our intern program is vital to the mission, vision and core values of SLLIS – and we hope you will join us this Sunday, March 29 at our annual Taste of the World. Our interns will prepare and share food from their home countries and guests will have a chance to learn more about the Intern Program and how to get involved!
