Delegate Mark N. Fisher would like to extend an internship opportunity to high school and college aged students in Calvert County.
The internship would take place during the upcoming 2018 Legislative Session in Annapolis. The legislative session lasts from January 10th until April 9th (90 days).
We are seeking students who are interested in the political process and wish to gain invaluable first-hand experience as to how state government operates. The schedule is incredibly flexible. Understanding our interns are attending school while participating in this internship, we allow the interns to adjust their schedule as needed. Typically, our interns work 1-2 days a week. The hours vary based on their class schedules, some work half days, some work full days, and some only put in a few hours when they can. This opportunity is excellent for individuals who may have an early release schedule and can travel to and from Annapolis.
The type of work assigned to interns is mainly legislative, although some duties are clerical in nature. Legislative responsibilities may include: conducting research; drafting correspondence; preparing, recording, and reporting testimony; contacting witnesses; attending committee hearings; tracking bills; working on mailings; responding to constituents' inquiries; and, writing newsletters. Mark and I also like to give the interns opportunities to get involved in the legislative process. Each intern will have the opportunity to present oral testimony in support of legislation before House and Senate Committees if they so choose to (this is not required). Like with all things in life, you will get out what you put into this internship.
This is a volunteer only internship and will thus be unpaid. Please have all interested individuals send us a resume via email at: Mark.Fisher@house.state.md.us. The deadline for applications to be submitted is Monday, December 18th, 2017.

Scholarship opportunity for high school students interested in secondary teaching mathematics or science
Towson UTeach, Towson University’s program to prepare future secondary school mathematics and science teachers, is pleased to announce the availability of Kahlert Foundation Scholarships (up to $1,000 per year for up to four years) to be awarded to incoming freshmen who enroll at the university in Fall 2018 and plan to pursue a career in secondary school mathematics or science. Please share the attached announcement with current high school seniors who may be interested in this opportunity. The scholarship application deadline is December 1, 2017.
Students who complete the Towson UTeach Program earn a bachelor’s degree in their chosen content area (mathematics, biology, chemistry, earth-space science, or physics) along with the necessary education coursework for secondary school (grades 7-12) teaching certification in Maryland. Towson UTeach incorporates several novel approaches to teacher preparation: 1) early and frequent field placements in local public schools starting in the freshmen year; 2) education courses focused on and dedicated to the pedagogy of mathematics and science; and 3) master teachers, former exemplary public school teachers, who serve as coaches throughout the students’ four years. Additional information about our program can be found at our website www.towson.edu/uteach or via our information video.
