Alternative Teacher Certification

The Weatherford College Teacher Certification Program provides a route to Texas educator certification. Teacher certification is available to individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree and meet other admissions criteria. A combination of online and face-to-face classes prepares students to teach in Texas schools and pass state certification exams.

The final step in the certification process is to be hired as a first-year teacher (which functions as a paid internship) or to teach for fourteen weeks in a public school classroom under the direction of a certified teacher in a clinical teaching experience (much like student teaching). Supervision is provided by a mentor teacher in the school and a Teacher Certification Program field supervisor.

  • Core Subjects (Grades 4-8)
