The Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC) 2015 Summer Internship runs from May 29th to July 19th.
The internship is unfunded. Housing on-campus costs $450 for the summer. Some meals are provided during the internship. We estimate that an intern needs about $1,000 for the summer. This covers housing and food expenses over the nine weeks.
The MTC Summer Internship has several components:
- Updating the MTC Oral History Project (started by 2010 Summer Interns Betsy Critchfield and Larissa Davis). This involves interviewing past MTC participants and staff members and adding to the oral history database.
- Assisting with the running of the MTC Summer School in Holly Springs. This involves: working with the summer school principal; interacting with parents and staff; observing classes; and helping to run after-school activities.
- Working at the main MTC office. This includes: interviewing principals and superintendents about the performance on the MTC teachers; taking photos for the MTC website; and helping to set the fall recruiting agenda.
