Are you bi/multilingual and interested in being trained to become a teacher? JOIN US! 

Western offers two teacher education programs focused on multilingual education in South King County! Individuals interested in becoming elementary teachers can pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Education. Those interested in becoming a middle/high school teacher can pursue a Master in Teaching degree. Both programs are focused on teaching in dual-language settings. 

Located at the Puget Sound ESD in Renton, all classes will be held during evening hours and on some Saturdays, including summer quarters. Candidates will be employed by a school district in South King County during the day while studying classes in the evening.  

We encourage all interested candidates to contact us to learn more about the programs and specific entry requirements. See links below for contact info!
