Paid Student Teaching Internships

Clinically Rich Paid Internship Opportunities

In several school districts on Long Island where Hofstra University's School of Education has developed school-university partnerships, students complete their formal student teaching placements in the fall semester and then segue into a paid internship role for the remainder of the school year through the end of the spring term.

While serving in the spring, interns provide academic intervention services and/or tutorial services to district students while continuing to develop their pedagogical skills under the direction of district teachers and administrators. Employment as interns provides valuable clinically rich experiences at the conclusion of the teacher training program and gives interns solid experience on which to continue building a resume as they work to secure a first teaching position. Hofstra University continues to provide supervision to the interns through their experience.

Interns are paid a stipend ranging from $6,500 to $8,500 for their employment in districts for the spring term. Acceptance into the internship program is by interview and is highly competitive.

This opportunity is for fall student teachers only. Interested students should refer to the fall student teaching application for more information.
