How It Works
In order to become certified, a student will complete 30 credit hours of graduate coursework, a teaching internship, and achieve a satisfactory level of performance on all appropriate TExES exams.
The programs offered include:
- Elementary Education (Generalist EC-6)
- Bilingual Elementary Education (Generalist EC-6)
- Special Education (EC-12)
- Middle or High School (Math 4-8, Math 8-12, Science 4-8, Science 8-12, Math/Science 4-8, or Chemistry 8-12)
(Click each area to view a sample program plan)
Program cohorts begin each spring or summer and complete all coursework in five semesters. Prior to the start of university classes, each student will complete 30 hours of observation in a classroom to gain an understanding of what to expect as a teacher and observe classroom management first-hand.
The TEACH Project is partnered with 26 local school districts which means our staff will let students know of any job vacancies in those areas. In addition, students will receive ongoing support and mentoring as well as monthly professional development meetings to provide the opportunity to talk with other first-year teachers and share experiences and ideas.
Students pay normal Texas A&M University-Kingsville tuition and fees and will be able to apply for financial aid through the university.
We encourage you to read through our handbook to learn more about the program and see if it is a good fit for your future goals and needs.
