Why We Love WESD!
“Student teaching in WESD provided me with first hand support and knowledge that has enabled me to be an effective first year teacher. Working directly with students, a knowledgeable mentor teacher and a supportive staff greatly increased my chance for success as an educator.”
"From teaching in the Washington District you are able to get a hands on experience with all different kinds of students. I was able to work with a variety of students and see firsthand how home life can affect a student. It was a very eye opening and rewarding experience. I loved how involved everyone was and how they welcomed me. Everyone was willing to help me in any way I needed help as well."
“During my summer internship in the HR department, I had the pleasure of working with the HR team, who instantly made me feel right at home. The internship was educational, and it varied day by day. Through the internship, I learned a lot about recruitment and HR processes. I was also given many opportunities to provide feedback and felt that my ideas were heard. I can testify that this internship gave me a lot of new experiences and I thoroughly enjoyed this learning opportunity!”
