Teams Selected for Teacher Externship Program

Congratulations to the 3 Rutherford County Middle Schools selected to participate in the our first Teacher Externship Program!
  • Christina Middle School
  • Oakland Middle School
  • Smyrna Middle School
The Teacher Externship Program will be held from July 9-20 and externs will be placed in STEM related fields with the hope that administrators, teachers, and counselors are able to speak from experience as they advise students on educational and career goals. Middle school extern teams will also be expected to design a real-world lesson plan for what they experience during their paid externship.
The Rutherford Works Teacher Externship Program is a partnership with Rutherford County Schools to help middle school teachers gain access to employers in the five high demand, high wage industry sectors in Rutherford County.
