What Certifications are Needed to Teach in Texas?

Once you complete training, participate in 30 hours of field based experience, and pass the TExEs test, you are able to apply for your certification.

Which Tests are Required for Teachers in Texas?

There are a minimum of two exams every educator must take to receive certification in Texas: the TExES Content Test and the TExES PPR Exam. Depending on your subject area, you may be required to take additional content tests. If you are seeking certification in Core Subjects 4-8, Core Subjects EC-6, English Language Arts and Reading 4-8, or English Language Arts and Reading/Social Studies 4-8, you will need to pass the Science of Teaching Reading (STR) exam. All teachers in the state of Texas must pass the Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) exam to receive a Standard Certificate.

What is the TExES Content Test?

The Texas Examinations of Educator Standards, or TExES, is an exam you’ll need to take to get your first Texas teaching certificate. Every teacher in the state of Texas must take a TExES demonstrating they understand the content they will teach – called a “content test”. TExES is just the umbrella term that refers to all the individual content tests. The TExES content test is designed to show that you’re ready to teach a subject in your own classroom. The specific content test you take will depend on the subject area and grade level you plan to teach. Depending on what you plan to teach, you may need to take more than one content test.

What is the PPR Exam?

The PPR Exam, formally known as the Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities Exam, is a Texas Examinations of Educator Standards (TExES) exam, and a mandatory component of the teacher certification process in Texas.

The PPR Exam evaluates candidates’ knowledge and understanding of pedagogical practices, teaching methodologies, classroom management, and professional responsibilities essential for effective teaching. Its purpose is to ensure that prospective educators possess the necessary skills and competencies to create a positive learning environment, engage students, and meet the diverse needs of learners.

Does Teachers of Tomorrow offer rolling admission?
