WSU College of Education ProTeach Support Program


Washington State University ProTeach Support Program provides guidance and encouragement to teachers working toward their Professional Certificate.  Our trained instructors will help you navigate the journey and assist you in preparation of your portfolio.  It is critical that you plan in advance to determine your application date.  You need to allow enough time to resubmit if needed.

The ProTeach program can be completed online, in-district or on-campus in Pullman, Spokane, Tri-Cities or Vancouver.
