Program Overview

Program Description:

The Cloud Forest School semester internship is a 4-month, field-based learning experience. Interns work as full-time assistants to a classroom teacher where they learn to plan and give lessons, evaluate student work and behavior, and refine their classroom management skills. They work closely with a cooperating teacher to assist in all aspects of the classroom. Interns live with school homestay families, helping them to integrate into the local culture while being fully immersed in a Spanish speaking lifestyle as well. Interns attend teaching meetings, professional development sessions, and become a part of the CFS family.
