Student Teachers

  • Our Human Resources Department has developed a registration system for our practicum and student teaching placements.  This system collects data from our colleges/universities and student teaching candidates, to ensure that all students are appropriately screened, principals are aware of and approve all placements, and it allows us to track excellent student teachers for early hire.

    Questions should be directed to our Placement Coordinator, Melissa Bussear, at (615) 453-4675 or via email at bussemel100@wcschools.com.
