By REBECCA LEFTWICH rebecca@newnan.com Students in the Teacher Pipeline program at Central Educational Center attended Tuesday's Coweta County Board of Education meeting, where program director Dr. Susan Mullins praised them for their contributions and efforts during teaching internships at county elementary and middle schools. "These interns have worked throughout the school year during their assigned internship blocks," Mullins said. "They receive praise from their teachers for their ability to add instructional support for small groups and individuals, their organizational skills and their enthusiasm."
Students recognized Tuesday included Taylor Bartlett of Ruth Hill Elementary; Hailee Koenig of Poplar Road Elementary and Lee Middle; Ashley Wilder of Elm Street and Jefferson Parkway elementaries; Haley Carter of Ruth Hill and Atkinson elementaries; Holly Malcom of Ruth Hill Elementary; Marina McCoy of Eastside Elementary; Carley Allred of Evans Middle; Tori Butcher of Eastside Elementary and East Coweta Middle; Katie Cann of Poplar Road Elementary; Jimmie Reid of Elm Street Elementary and Smokey Road Middle; Kendall Aitken of Poplar Road and Eastside elementaries; and Aja Benning of East Coweta Middle. Through the Teacher Pipeline work-study program, students considering careers in education have the opportunity to pursue hands-on, intensive training in the teaching profession. Participants work their way through three courses of study that provide classroom and supplemental teaching experience, which Mullins said gives the students a true understanding of the education industry from any angle they choose to pursue as a career. According to Mullins, internship assignments range from 7.5 hours weekly to 22.5 hours weekly, depending upon the individual intern's job. Jobs include working in elementary and middle school classrooms assisting teachers, shadowing and working with elementary counselors, and working in special tutoring programs during and after school. Mullins said the students contribute as much as they benefit. "At this point in the school year, the entire group of 67 Teacher Pipeline Interns have provided unpaid extra instructional support that has a dollar value of $221,000," she said.
