During the spring 2017 semester, Terrapin Teachers, in partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS), piloted a paid internship initiative. Interns from the College of Education's Master's Certification (MCERT) program were hired to fulfill one long-term substitute position. During the spring semester, Elyse Sauer and Hannah McIlvried were placed at Northwood High School. They co-taught Algebra I and Algebra II honors courses.
Terrapin Teachers was able to talk with Hannah McIlvried (now Mrs. Hannah Coleman), about her internship experience and how it prepared her for her current position at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, MD. Hannah teaches Algebra I and Related Math to primarily English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students and Honors Algebra II.
