Teacher Education in Texas

If you have spent any time thinking about becoming a teacher, you have already likely given some thought as to which grade levels you want to teach. The type of teaching license you get decides whether you can teach early, elementary, secondary, or special education, so make this choice very carefully.

You can get started in most of these fields with a Bachelor's degree in education. If you want to work in secondary education and you already have a Bachelor's degree, consider an alternative certification program. If you want to take your education to the next level, a Master's degree may be what you need.

The coursework you complete is meant to address a specific set of learning goals, including goals that are specific to your school and those that fit the educational standards of Texas. A Master's-level program may reach these goals in courses like Technology and Student-Centered Learning, School Issues Seminar, Comprehension and the Content Areas, High School Mathematics & Methods, Technology for Educators, Inclusive Education and Classrooms, and Advanced Classroom Management.

One of the biggest sources of financial aid for teachers in Texas is T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood Texas. This program supports teaching students through a range of scholarships.
