Senior teacher education students take part in an internship during their final semester at GSC. At the conclusion of their internship, students must complete a presentation illustrating their mastery of the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC) standards as well as the standards of their particular area of study.
These students will participate in the 142nd GSC Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 7. For more information about the Teacher Education Program at Glenville State College, contact (304) 462-4119.
