Collaboration within our educational communities strengthens our resolve and enhances our success in preparing teachers who will advance the intellectual lives of their students while helping them to live responsibly in our racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse society.
The Teacher Certification Program is continually revitalized through the collaborative efforts of the Program faculty and staff and the teachers, principals, and other school administrators who serve on the Professional Education Advisory Board. This commitment is summarized in our program's mission statement and elaborated in our conceptual framework

Intern Substitute Certification
Background: OSPI created the Intern Substitute Certificate to create an opportunity for districts to use student interns in the event their cooperating teacher is out during their student teaching quarter (this makes you eligible to sub ONLY for your cooperating teacher and ONLY during your student teaching quarter). UW Bothell School of Educational Studies will not accept or process the Intern Substitute Certificate paperwork before March 13, 2015 for the K-8 program, December 12, 2014 for Secondary.
1. First check with your assigned district human resources director to see if the Intern Subtitute Certificate is approved by your district. Get approval from both your cooperating teacher and building principal- there is no form for this but critical and required.
