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.
