STEP 3 – ENROLL
Once accepted, you must officially enroll in the program.
The monthly payment option requires a $99 enrollment fee and a commitment to $99 monthly payments while completing the program. Once the field experience begins, the payments will increase to pay your balance in full by the end of the two semesters.
STEP 4 – TRAINING
iteachTEXAS is a better use of your time with our online, self-paced, and competency-based coursework with no timelines or deadlines to impede your progress. Once enrolled in the program, you will have access to your courses via Canvas. Here you will be able to complete TCTX 5100, 5200, and 5300.
STEP 5 – TESTING
You will need to pass a content test prior to being eligible for hire. We will help identify this area as well as training for your success. With our monthly payment plan, you have access to the best test preparation, 240Tutoring, for free!
STEP 6 – GET HIRED
Once your 3 Pre-Hire courses are completed and your 30 hours of Classroom Observation Hours logged, you are eligible to be hired.
When Can I Get Hired?
You can be eligible for hire within a few weeks from enrollment. You just need to complete the following items:
- 30 Hours of Observation Logged
- First 3 Courses Completed (5100-5300)
- Content Test Passed (including all supplemental tests)
Once your 3 pre-hired courses are completed and your 30 hours of Classroom Observation hours are logged along with your content test(s) passed, you are provided a Statement of Eligibility (SOE) so you can secure a teaching position.
STEP 7 – FIELD EXPERIENCE
After receiving your Statement of Eligibility and you are hired for your one-year internship, you will be observed for your Field Experience on several occasions by an iteach field supervisor. This is your chance to show off what you have learned in the courses and demonstrate that you are capable of serving as an educator.
STEP 8 – FEES PAID AND COMPLETE COURSEWORK
Once you are hired, your remaining balance must be paid in full by the end of your Internship.
All remaining coursework must be completed by the end of your first year of teaching. You will have two complete school years from the time you acknowledge your Letter of Agreement (enroll) to complete all program requirements. However, once hired all instructional coursework through 5600 must be completed within four months.
STEP 9 – TAKE PPR TEST
After the account is paid in full and with all program requirements completed, we can then recommend you for the Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) exam to then receive a Standard Certificate.
STEP 10 – GRADUATION
Congratulations! At this point, you will have successfully completed your first year as a professional educator, received your Standard Certificate, and will be on your way to an impactful career as a teacher.
