From Alliance Intern to Teacher In Training
May 27, 2010 04:13 pm
During my final semester at Georgetown University, I was able to take a class in the philosophy of education, intern at the Alliance for Excellent Education, and start the process towards becoming a teacher in the school district of Philadelphia. With a strong interest in educational reform, I started the semester with many questions and a hope that many would be answered. Reflecting upon these past four months, I realized I have developed more questions than answers. My questions, however, have become more focused. Being able to learn about issues such as technology’s role in education and the specific needs of exceptional students, I am more acutely aware of the challenges we face in reforming our education system.
