Internship Information - Education for Inclusive Environments

Internship Sequence

Undergraduate candidates

Undergraduate candidates from the Teacher Education Outreach Programs (TEOP) Education for Inclusive Environments Program in Everett and Bremerton complete a robust Spring practicum and complete the full-time student teaching internship in either a Special Education or Elementary Education classroom during the final Fall quarter of the program.

The Fall quarter internship begins when the teacher returns to the classroom (late August/early September) and continues until early December. Candidates will follow the work schedule of a full-time teacher, logging a minimum of 450 hours.

EIE candidates submit the Internship Application by November 15 for placement in the Spring practicum and Fall internship.

Post-bac candidates

Post-bac candidates complete a full-time internship during the final quarter of their program at the same site that they have completed their part-time practicum training, unless they are adding the Special Education endorsement. See calendars on the Internship Materials page for details.

Post-bac candidates who desire to add the Special Education endorsement would complete another full-time internship after the Elementary Education internship is completed. Contact the program for information on how to apply for this internship.

Grade Level and Location Requests

When you complete your Internship Application, you will indicate your preferred grade ranges and locations. We will do our best to place you according to your preferences, however, these requests are not guaranteed.

Most placements are local--in Skagit, Snohomish or King Counties. If you wish to complete your internship outside of these areas, you may make a request by completing the "Out of Area Request" section of the application.

International placements are also an option in some programs. Please contact your program to inquire if you are interested in an international internship.
