Professional Experiences Team

The Professional Experiences Team provides support for all WCE programs by organizing, managing, and reporting on all of the course-related field experiences and internships required for degrees and/or licensure. We work in collaboration with the Professional Development System to identify quality placements within our partnership districts so that students have a diverse and enriching set of field experiences during their time in WCE programs. We also maintain a database on all students currently placed in the field. In addition, we provide training and support for university supervisors working with interns, and we work directly with public school partners to manage any student issues which may arise during the course of a professional experience.
