I am an assistant preschool teacher, I help the Lead teacher with anything she needs. I help with circle time, snack, lunch, phonics papers, morning work, letter tracing book, anything and everything the teacher needs help with. There is one receptionist in the office who is also a teacher part time, she take the phones calls, goes to each classroom and makes copies of lesson plans or pictures for the teachers. The dress code suggested to be comfortable shoes, pants but not jeans, it is more dressed down but comfortable because you are on your feet working with kids.
I found this internship by calling preschools, and daycares in Middletown and in Portsmouth close to where I live. I asked if they accept interns Silveira kindergarten and preschool just so happens to be accepting interns. Eventually when it came close me to being done with my internship my mentor wanted to keep me there so she hired me on the spot. It was a great experience. I got to learn a lot about the preparation and time that it take to prepare activities for the students each day.
