Field Experience

An important part of teacher preparation is field experience.  As an education student you will be placed in a variety of community and school settings throughout your education at WSU.  Experiences include opportunities to observe, tutor, co-teach and work side by side with experienced teachers.  The Office of Clinical Practice works with faculty to provide meaningful field experiences for our students.
