    Student Teachers

    Would you like to complete your student teaching in the Lake Washington School District? We look forward to working with you as you begin your teaching career. We make sure student teachers work with quality Cooperating Teachers. We provide technology support and a Student Teaching Orientation. At the orientation, student teachers meet members of the New Teacher Support Program and the Human Resources department.

    A university placement coordinator must make your student teaching placement request. To begin the process, ask your coordinator to contact Kristi Bryant, Lake Washington School District, Professional Learning Department.
