JSHS Internship Profile - Hana NeffThe Wyomissing Area Senior High School Internship Program is part of an initiative from the Pennsylvania Department of Education called Pennsylvania Career Readiness. 

The goals of the Internship Program, which has been in development for the last year, are to provide students with the opportunity for career exploration and hands-on field experience before choosing a career or postsecondary area of concentration; give interns exposure to the professional expectations of the “working world”; connect academic applications to practical skills; and meaningfully extend every academic department’s existing curriculum. 

For the 2019 spring session, ten student interns are working with mentors in internal placements throughout the school district.  As teacher and Internship Coordinator Peter Beck explains, "This pilot year will provide valuable data and feedback to enhance the experience for next year’s interns." 

This week’s featured Internship focuses on Junior Hana Neff who has always dreamed of being an elementary- school teacher, so it is no surprise that she chose to intern at the Wyomissing Hills Elementary Center. She was excited to be placed in Mrs. Lauren Fiorentino’s third-grade classroom.
