Horace Mann Elementary offers students an opportunity to learn about and work with children aged 3-11. Interns at this site are usually paired with a particular teacher or classroom, an art program, or “high-risk” students who are in need of extra help with school. The assignment is based on the student’s interests.
The school has had several AU students join their community in years past, one of which is now on staff full-time. While they are not routinely seeking interns, they are happy to accommodate one or two should the candidate be seen as a good fit. The school emphasizes the importance of carrying one’s self in a professional manner, including the need for punctuality. Students at the school will likely form strong bonds with college interns, so reliability and dedication is of upmost importance.
