What is TOTAL? The opportunity for an intensive internship semester prior to student teaching. This program allows an intern the experience of working with a coaching teacher in one classroom for the entire semester.  This “immersion” in a school and classroom provides the intern a glimpse into the “bell to bell” world of school.
