Placement Process

After enrolling in the Texas Teachers program, there are a few additional steps that must be completed for consideration and admittance into the Clinical Teaching program for the Fall semester of 2020. The last official placement date for the Fall semester is August 26th, 2020.

Before Acceptance

  • Candidates must demonstrate subject matter knowledge by passing the state content exam(s) for the desired certification area.
  • Candidates will obtain 30 hours of field-based experience by observing a certified teacher on a TEA-accredited campus.
  • Email to request access to take the Star Haberman Exam – a free online screening test which evaluates your teaching philosophy.
  • If the Star Haberman Exam shows you are a good fit for Clinical Teaching, a coordinator will schedule a face-to-face interview with you.

After Acceptance

  • Texas Teachers works with candidate’s preferred school districts to find a placement.
  • Clinical teachers are required to complete three training modules before a placement request will be sent.
  • Placement is not guaranteed. Once a placement is established, the internship route is no longer available to the candidate.
