Professional Development

The interns had their December Intern Professional Development day which focused on learning to be reflective educators. During the month of November, Marin Lindberg (or the intern’s cooperating teacher) video recorded each intern leading a Morning Meeting. At CMS and the high school, the interns lead a community builder. At the intern PD meeting, the interns were able to watch their video and reflect on their classroom management.

They talked about how to be reflective educators, looked for ways to improve and were encouraged to continue doing things they were already doing. Many of the interns asked at the end of the day if they could dive even deeper into how to grow in their teaching.

It is encouraging to see how motivated the interns are to take advantage of the educational resources at Eagle Heights, Central Middle School, Eden Prairie High School and the district as a whole.


Fall Intern Festival

The Fall Intern Festival took place on Thursday, November 16. The interns put in a lot of hours working on their booths and preparing engaging activities and eye-catching presentations for both parents and students to enjoy. It was a fun evening of learning and sharing. Thank you interns for all your hard work putting together this event for our school community!



Interns at the EHSI Fun Run

The 2017 EHSI Fun Run put on by Craig Schewe, EHSI gym teacher, took place on Saturday, October 7 and was a huge success! This year the weather was a little wet, but that didn’t affect the turnout or the excitement on the part of the interns or the kids and their families.

The interns helped with face painting during registration and helped get the kids pumped up to run. When it was time to head to the track, everyone came outside ready and excited to check out the new route designed by Mr. Schewe.

After the run, the SEF had a table with healthy snacks and water where families had the chance to “Meet Your Intern.” Thank you to everyone who volunteered and participated to make it a wonderful event full of exercise, fun and community!
