The CTETP placed interns in classrooms here at ECC and at local high schools, including Hawthorne High School.

Here are some comments from recent student essays:

After spending a semester with a Welding professor, one student wrote: "I will give every class and every professor my undivided attention from this point forward, because of the dedication and passion invested in their work."

An HVAC teacher intern wrote, "Giving lecture was significantly more challenging than assisting with lab instruction, however I found it to be equally rewarding."

From a Fire Tech intern, "The experience is beyond what the book tells you, it is not something you can learn just by reading words.  In my opinion, experience is necessary for the professor to have when teaching a technical subject."

A teacher intern from Automotive Repair wrote, "The gifted teacher is never too busy to answer student's questions or to support them in their personal automotive projects."
