WEA ProTeach Jump Start is a four-day comprehensive seminar designed to provide candidates with important information about the certification process, time to examine entry requirements, the opportunity to plan how to meet requirements, and time to collaborate, gather resources and information needed to pursue certification.
Feedback from WEA members suggests that support does matter in both the quality of the professional learning experience and certification result. The ProTeach Jump Start is designed on the belief that this is a great opportunity for professional development and growth through collegial support.
Those who are committed to starting the ProTeach portfolio process in the 2016-17 school years should consider attending a ProTeach Jump Start Seminar. You do not need to be registered with Washington ProTeach to attend Jump Start.
