BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - The Bronxville School District is teaming with a pair of local universities in an effort to best prepare the next generation of teachers for the classroom.

As part of the Bronxville Teacher Residency program, aspiring educators from Manhattanville College and LIU/Hudson provided seven graduate students the opportunity to intern under experienced educators who mentor them throughout the entire academic year.

According to Elementary School Assistant Principal Adrienne Laitman, the students “are learning about planning, instruction, collaborating with colleagues, parent-teacher communications and other aspects of teaching.”

“They’re embedded in our school, but they are also part of the curriculum planning and general planning for all that goes on for our students,” she said. “They have a full year here from the first day until the very last day of school and we feel that’s an excellent, rich clinical experience for them in terms of preparing them for their own classrooms.”

An additional bonus, Laotian added, is that if a full-time teacher needs a day off or falls ill, the interns are capable of filling in without students missing a beat.

“As they become more experienced, they take on more responsibilities in their home base classrooms,” Laitman said. “They’re also substituting primarily on their grade level but also in other classes. They’re known by the rest of the teachers and parents and are really part of our school community.”
