UHV Sponsors Alumnus in Teacher Internship Program

This summer, the University of Houston-Victoria sponsored area teacher Patrick Hubble to participate in the Texas Workforce Solutions’ Teacher Internship Program. Hubble, who teaches Spanish at Memorial High School’s Stroman campus, spent several days job shadowing the workers at Victoria Electric Co-Op. The program is designed to give teachers firsthand experience in local workplaces, so they can relate the skills taught in their classrooms to the skills needed on the job.

Hubble graduated from UHV in 1991 with a master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies. UHV donated $500 to sponsor his participation in the program. For more information on the Texas Workforce Solutions’ Teacher Internship Program, contact Linda Salazar-Ybarbo at (361) 578-0341.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region since 1973, offers courses leading to 70 bachelor’s, master’s and specialist degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences; Business Administration; and Education, Health Professions & Human Development. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus, as well as a teaching center in Katy, and online classes that students can take from anywhere. UHV supports the American Association of State Colleges and Universities Opportunities for All initiative to increase awareness about state colleges and universities, and the important role they have in providing a high-quality and accessible education to an increasingly diverse student population, as well as contributing to regional and state economic development.
