Clinical Teachers & Classroom Observers

  • Clinical Teaching

    Wylie ISD welcomes clinical teachers during the fall and spring semesters. To request placement, please follow the steps below. All clinical teacher requests are handled through Human Resources. Students or representatives should not contact teachers or principals directly. Review the Clinical Teacher Handbook for more information on our program.

    Placement Process

    1. Clinical Teacher requests must be made by the university or certification program.
      The request must include:
      • Description of the assignment
      • Certification being sought
      • Preferences for school or grade level
      • Assignment starting and ending dates or total hours required.
    2. Complete an online background check for the district.

    *Clinical teaching requests for Fall 2022 will be accepted by Wylie ISD through July 1, 2022.

    Clinical Teachers will attend a district orientation to get an overview of our expectations for them. They will receive a clinical teacher badge at this time. If they begin their clinical teaching before the orientation date, they will need to have their driver's license to receive a visitor's badge in the front office. Please contact Melissa Hefty at (972) 429-3066 or Melissa.Hefty@wylieisd.netif you have any questions.

    Classroom Observers

    Classroom Observers are individuals looking to observe in our classrooms to meet state or university requirements before teacher certification. Wylie ISD does allow individuals to observe in our classrooms provided the observer wears a mask while observing. Observers will work directly with the classroom teacher they are assigned to arrange dates and times to observe. The available dates for observation are as follows:

    Spring 2022 Observation requests are no longer being accepted. We apologize for any inconvenience.
