Educator Preparation Program
Education Service Center, Region 2

The Educator Preparation Program is designed for individuals who possess at least a bachelor’s degree and are interested in becoming a certified teacher in the state of Texas.

Our quality program provides a rigorous, fast-paced, and effective preparation for the classroom.


Candidates accepted into the program will complete an intensive pre-service training from January to July each year.

When school begins in July or August, the candidate is eligible to enter the classroom as a fully-paid teacher. Throughout the first year, candidates receive extensive support and mentorship provided by a campus mentor and the Education Service Center staff.

In lieu of a paid internship we offer a 14 week clinical teaching experience which allows candidates to earn a standard certificate.


Candidates who successfully complete their training requirements, internship and teacher examinations will be recommended for a Standard Texas Teaching License.
