"UTeach Internships are extremely valuable. Local schools and other organizations get interns that are knowledgeable of the subject matter which helps enhance their student's learning experience. UTeach students get a significant amount of financial support which, helps ease the burden on their parents or whoever else may be supporting them financially. It's a win-win" - UTeach Intern.
The goals of UTeach and the UTeach Internship program are to address the critical need for highly qualified STEM teachers.
