The Pioneers of the Local Student Internship Exchange Program paid a visit to the CBSUA President, marking the end of their two-and-a-half-month practice teaching at Benguet State University-Secondary Laboratory School. The four student-teacher interns, namely Mr. Jay C. Reburiano (Filipino), Ms. Angela M. Mien (Science), Ms. Jessa C. Tipones (Mathematics), and Ms. Nica Claire A. Rañada (English), returned to their home university and shared their valuable experiences during a courtesy visit to President Alberto Naperi together with the CDE Dean, Dr. Raquel M. Reapor on May 3, 2022, at 3:00 in the afternoon.
The Local Student Internship Exchange Program is a joint initiative between CBSUA-CDE and BSU-CTE aimed at providing students with actual teaching experience and enhancing their work values, competence, and discipline as they relate to others in a multicultural work environment.
During the meeting, the four student-teacher interns expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the program and shared how it had helped them develop their teaching skills and improve their communication with students from diverse backgrounds. They also highlighted the challenges they faced and how they overcame them, such as adjusting to a new teaching environment and working with students with different learning styles.
President Alberto Naperi congratulated the interns on successfully completing their teaching internship and representing CBSUA with pride and professionalism. He also commended the program for providing students with practical experience and developing their competencies in the field of education.
The Local Student Internship Exchange Program is just one of many initiatives that CBSUA is implementing to provide students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for the demands of the modern workforce. With the support of university leaders, educators, and industry partners, CBSUA is committed to delivering quality education that produces competent and socially responsible graduates who can contribute to the development of their communities and the country as a whole.
