Mathematics at the Mount

by

NCTM ConferenceMount students and faculty at the NCTM Conference

As a senior mathematics major getting certified in adolescence education with a middle school extension, I’ve had the chance to get to know professors in both the education and math divisions, and I’ve thrived here at college thanks to everything I’ve experienced within the past four years. I am currently student teaching and have had an adequate amount of experience in the education field. During my first student teaching placement, I was at Bishop Dunn Memorial School teaching math in grades 6-8. My second placement was at NFA North, where I worked with many different classes and played different roles inside of the classroom. Getting to experience teaching in middle school and in high school has helped me decide that I want to be a middle school math teacher.

Mount Student Produces Video for Poughkeepsie Journal

by

As part of Mount student Molly McKee’s internship at the Poughkeepsie Journal, she shot and edited the above video about the Historic Kimlin Cider Mill. Molly had this to say about her internship:

The Poughkeepsie Journal is a wonderful place to intern. I work for the multimedia part of the Journal, meaning I shoot footage either in the studio or on location. I then edit it and upload it to the website. Since working at the Journal, I have learned so much, including how to conduct a great interview, how to edit footage on new software, and how to use different camera equipment. The on-site experiences I’ve gained within the last month have been great! They have taught me so much about working in the “real world.” My favorite parts about working for the Journal are shooting and then editing footage. I enjoy doing this because I can really take the story that I am shooting and make it my own meaningful story.

In a field like information technology, new developments occur daily. Because of this, it is critical not only to have the foundation set forth in the classroom, but also the hands-on experience that allows you to become more adaptable to these changes. The experience I gained interning as a web programmer at A.J. Ross Creative Media in Chester, NY was invaluable to me. From day one, I was treated as a member of the team and collaborated with the staff on real-world problems. Within a few weeks, I was independently programming websites for clients.

My Orange County Choppers Experience

by

Angela Oliveri

I came into junior year a new person after my summer internship at the YWCA of the City of New York. It taught me a great deal regarding professionalism and what the work place was like. Realizing that I would be studying abroad in the coming summer, I knew my next/final internship had to be completed in the spring of 2012, and I had my heart set on one place, Orange County Choppers.

With YWCA-NYC being a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women, and Orange County Choppers being a custom motorcycle company that’s part of a hit television series, I got exactly what I wanted – the chance to test my strengths and see if I could handle doing PR work for two completely different companies.
