Student Teachers / Interns
District 155 accepts student teachers and/or interns every semester. District 155 sends an email to all school Division Leaders twice a year to see if they are interested in hosting a student teacher or intern.
All placements are initiated through the Director of Curriculum and Assessment, Matt Timmerman. If you are interested in applying, there is required paperwork:
- Placement request from University
Two references (contact information required only)
Statement of interest
DCFS Mandated Reporter (Certificate of Completion)
*If you are a District 155 grad, the office will not place you at your graduating school*
D155 receives a large number of requests each year. With this in mind, candidates should be in good academic standing with their university, have a solid academic background, and strong grades in their specific content area.
Observation hours are scheduled directly through the Principal and/or the Division Leader. The student teacher/intern will always be supervised.
If you have any questions about the required paperwork or the student teaching/internship program please contact Matt Timmerman.
