Background Information

The Academies@Englewood is a public magnet high school started in 2002, located on the campus of Dwight Morrow High School. The students have to begin the application process when they are in eighth grade. It is a rigorous task, similar to the one for college. The students must submit written essays, obtain recommendations, take a test and complete an interview before they receive an answer. Once accepted, the students begin the long and challenging curriculum of all honors high school courses. Students have many more opportunities at the Academies than most students in regular high schools would. It is a wonderful school that can help a strong student excel and help prepare them for the future.

Summary of Internship

I intern with Junior English teacher, Ms. Christina McGrath. I help her with grading papers and planning out lessons, while she teaches me how to run a successful class. She also helps me to see how to get the students to understand the material they read in class. She has been with the school from the beginning so she knows everything there is to know about what the school started as and where it is going. She has a ton of experience and I am able to learn so much from her that I will be able to take into college.
