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 full-time student teaching internship that includes both Special Education and Elementary Education placements during the final fall quarter of the program.

The fall quarter internship is longer than the WWU calendar; it starts whenever the school year begins (late-August/early-September) and continues through the WWU term. Candidates will follow the work schedule of a full-time teacher, logging a minimum of 450 hours.

Undergraduate candidates: Submit the Placement Information Form no later than Feb.15, which is approximately six months before the start date of the 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. To apply for the Special Education internship:

  • Complete the Placement Information Form for the spring Special Education placement.
  • Submit this form by the due date. Save the file using the same application naming convention but add SPED after the term.

Grade/Area Choices

Indicate your preferred grade ranges and districts on the Placement Information Form. Note that while we will do our best to place you according to your preferences, these choices are not guaranteed.

The following areas may be requested but require a petition. Petitions must be submitted by the time you submit your student teaching application:

  • Any Washington State district outside of Snohomish and King Counties
  • Out-of-state (Some districts do not host out-of-state candidates; please check with the district first).
