This teacher resource guide is an instructional resource for these three separate courses: exploring education careers, elementary school teacher assistant, and elementary school teaching internship.

Elementary school teacher assistant and elementary school teaching internship are designed as work-based internships that provide students learning experience in child development while they work directly with young children and career elementary school teachers.)
