Office of Field Experiences
Welcome to the Office of Field Experiences!
Personnel in the Office of Field Experiences coordinate school-based part-time practica experiences and full-time student teaching internship placements for all teacher education candidates in the Woodring College of Education.
Field experiences are integrated throughout each teacher preparation program with most students involved in school-based experiences starting their first term in the college. Part-time practica experiences generally occur in geographic locations near your program site while full-time student teaching internships may occur, depending on program requirements, across a broader geographic spectrum within the State of Washington, other U.S. states and overseas. We work closely with our school partners to ensure successful and rewarding placements for all of our candidates.
Field experience requirements, placement options, and length vary by program. Please explore this website to find information about your specific program and always feel free to contact OFE personnel if you have any questions. It is our constant goal to provide you with excellent support throughout all aspects of your field experiences.
e are proud of our teacher education programs and the thoughtful, knowledgeable and effective teachers who graduate our program. We look forward to supporting you throughout your field experiences!
