Internship: This option is a one year (two semester) internship you will complete at an Independent School District, TEA recognized private school, or charter school in the state of Texas. During your one-year teaching internship, you will receive salary and benefits commensurate of a first year teacher.
When your internship begins, the program will recommend
your probationary certificate. The probationary certificate enables you
to be considered the “teacher of record”, with all rights, privileges,
and responsibilities of any other first year teacher in Texas.
Clinical Teaching: This option allows you to become a certified teacher in the state of Texas in one semester. You will have the flexibility to become certified without locating a full-time teaching position.
Becoming a certified teacher will increase your likelihood of obtaining a full-time teaching position for next school year. Not to mention the hands on training that will be beneficial while you make the transition into the classroom.
