Reading this list of accomplishments, you might assume that these opportunities were afforded to me over the last several months, or maybe even throughout the past year.
I started my internship on May 16th, 2011. That was just a few weeks ago. I have been able to take advantage of all of the opportunities listed above, and more, in this short amount of time. The great variety of tasks and responsibilities delegated to me is absolutely astounding. Each day is filled with exciting new duties that I look forward to completing. I have loved every moment of my time here, and I would definitely recommend the Education Internship to anyone considering applying for the position in the future. I can only imagine what the rest of the summer has in store for me and my fellow interns!
