Recommendations for Applicants

Are you planning to become a teacher? Here are some considerations for planning/examining your content preparation:

  1. Identify the endorsement area you are interested in. [Note: an endorsement area refers to the subject area and age group of students you would like to teach.]
  2. Review the competencies (i.e. knowledge and skills) that Washington state says are important to the preparation of a public school teacher with this endorsement.
  3. Assess your preparation for teaching the content area(s) for your chosen endorsement:
    1. Graduates and Career changers: How have your educational, work and life experiences prepared you to teach in this endorsement area? Identify specific evidence to illustrate the competencies recommended for your endorsement. Identify the competencies where you may need to develop or deepen your knowledge and skill
    2. Undergraduates: Work with an academic advisor to help you plan your program, course and field work so that you can develop breadth and depth in your endorsement area.
