Learn How to Become a Teacher
Williamson County Schools is delighted to have students enrolled in accredited education programs apply to student teach, observe, intern or fulfill practicum requirements in the district.
- All interested students (regardless of placement type) should apply for the Student Teacher Position listed under job vacancies. Once the student has completed the online application, he or she will be prompted to take the Gallup Teacher Insight Assessment. Only students applying for student teaching positions are required to submit the Gallup. Students applying for observations, counseling or OT/PT internships or practicums are not required to submit the Gallup. The application and the assessment must be complete before a student can be considered for placement.
- WCS requires that interested applicants meet a certain criteria for placement approval. This approval will be granted by the Central Office Student Teacher Coordinator (District Coordinator) listed below.
The College/University Coordinator should contact the District Coordinator to secure placement for a student. Students should not reach out to principals directly unless they have been formally approved and told it’s acceptable to contact the principal. Most placements will be arranged by the District Coordinator and the College/University Coordinator.
- School principals have the final decision on placements within their buildings.
- Please contact the District Coordinator, Erin Caceras, with any questions you have.
