Student Teacher at Burncoat Middle School

"I taught a 7th grade, honors 8th grade, and a 7th grade ELL/special ed inclusion class. With all of the microteaching exercises, CSLs, and pre-practicum experiences I’ve had at Assumption, it felt very comfortable to get in front of a class every day and transition into being a teacher. I've learned that working closely with experts in the field is an extremely valuable experience."

Internship: Marketing/Events Intern at Worcester Business Journal

Assumption has provided the support, guidance, and tools that I need to succeed. Supportive professors and helpful employees at the CDIC are both resources that I utilized to enhance my resume, interviewing skills, and network. The courses I took for my major and minor were very helpful as they taught, not just out of a text book, but prepared me for the business world.
