About Clinical Teaching

Discover why Clinical Teaching may be the best option for you!

Clinical Teaching Route Considerations:

  • While Clinical Teaching is a full-time, unpaid  14-week student teaching assignment, this is the only way to fast track your teacher certification.
  • Acceptance into Clinical Teaching is not guaranteed (but highly likely). The application process is quick and free!
  • This is an exclusive route: Only candidates who have completed their 30 Field-Based Experience hours are admitted.

Clinical Teaching Route Benefits:

  • Get Hands-on Experience: Working in the classroom with a certified teacher provides a level of hands-on teaching and mentorship you won’t find elsewhere.
  • Learn from the Best: Your partner teacher is a master educator
  • Your Opinion Matters: We strive to place you in your top district choice.
  • Access to a Near-guaranteed Job: After completing your placement assignment, your chances of getting hired in the same school are much greater. The majority of Clinical Teaching program completers get hired in their school.

Program Requirments to Complete After (or During) Your Placement:

  • After your placement, you have an additional 60 days to complete any remaining requirements.

  • Candidates must pass their first pass state content exam(s) for the desired certification area before applying to Clinical Teaching.

Step 2: How to Apply

  • Connect with a Coordinator by emailing clinicalteaching@texasteachers.org.
