The Upper Valley Educators Institute contributes to the improvement of education by helping mature, remarkably talented people enter the teaching profession. UVEI's Class of 2013 carries on this tradition of excellence. In addition to their solid academic preparation, the majority of the interns had experience in other careers before deciding to become teachers.
Thirty-six individuals from a wide range of experiences and professional backgrounds comprise the Teacher Class of 2013. Their former careers include physician, family therapist, child case manager, gelato maker, architect, dairy farmer, museum collection manager, US Postal mail handler, lab technician, para-educator and classroom substitute.
Several interns already hold a graduate degree, one is an MD, and four are enrolled in UVEI’s Fall/Spring 2012 -13 Masters Degree Program. They range in age from 22-55; the mean age of the class is 32 years old.
