Faith Lutheran School of Plano today announced that the school has hired its second intern in the school’s classical Lutheran education internship program.
Nathanael Hahn, a senior at Concordia University Wisconsin has been selected as the second participant in the program.
Hahn will intern at Faith Lutheran School for the month of January, observing teachers and administrators and working with educators and staff in a variety of classroom and school-wide activities.
“This classical Lutheran education internship is different from traditional student teaching,” explained Faith Lutheran School of Plano Headmaster Rev. Stephen W. Kieser of Wylie. “Mr. Hahn will have the unique opportunity to experience and observe not only day-to-day teacher activities and routines, but also school administrator duties and responsibilities. He will also prepare and teach no less than two lessons under the supervision of a mentor.”
Classical Lutheran education internships are designed to be about four weeks long, rather than the typical 10 weeks or full semester timeframe that is typical of student teaching. Interested students may complete multiple internships at various campuses throughout their education as part of this program.
“This idea is very new,” said Kieser. “Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW) has had several students complete similar internships. Faith Lutheran School of Plano’s participation is a flagship opportunity for Mr. Hahn….the second internship in this program to be completed away from the CUW campus. We are proud to participate in such a program that furthers the experiences of our future classical Lutheran educators.”
Faith Lutheran School hosted its first Classical Lutheran Education intern in August 2019.
