Why Aldine?

Why should you student teach in Aldine? Past student teachers have recommended taking this opportunity because of...

The level of support you receive.
  Our student teaching program provides supportive cooperative teachers and a strong mentoring program. Seminars are conducted on topics which help student teachers perform at their optimum: classroom management, parent conferences, gang awareness, and interviewing techniques. Out-of-state student teachers are also given an overview of our Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS Test).

The ability to enter individualized teaching situations.
  Because of the Aldine's size, with sixty-three schools and an enrollment of nearly 50,000 students, we can provide a teaching situation geared to fit individual student teacher requests while following the guidelines and requirements of your university. We believe that student teaching in our district will prepare you for teaching in any classroom of your own.

The amount of diversity encountered.
 

Aldine Independent School District, located in Houston, Texas, is an urban school district with a a student population that is diverse, both culturally and economically.

Classrooms are comprised of students of African-American, Anglo, Asian, and Hispanic heritage. They range socio-economically from poverty level to upper middle class. The schools blend these cultures and backgrounds to provide the best possible education for our students.


The opportunities provided by a big city.

Because Houston is the nation's fourth largest city there are many opportunities available to its inhabitants. Aldine is only about 14 miles away from downtown museums, parks, and sports arenas. North of the city lies the tranquility of the outdoors at Mercer Arboretum and Jesse H. Jones Park. Further north is the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, an outdoor theatre which hosts international performers. Some 45 miles to the south is Galveston Island on the Gulf of Mexico. This historic city offers opportunities for exploring, shopping, swimming and sunning. These are but a few of the attractions the area offers you! Click here to visit The Official Guide to Houston.
