aggieTEACH has special opportunities for students in many departments and colleges within the university. The program has collaborations campus wide and can help configure degree plans that will allow students to complete their math- or science-related degree and obtain teacher certification in the traditional four years of college. Upon successful completion this would allow students to teach mathematics science in grades 7-12 in Texas.
Math and science teachers are in high demand in the state of Texas and as such, earning a valid Texas Teaching Certificate will expand the employment options available to students upon graduation. For the last five years, all aggieTEACH graduates who chose to teach after graduation have been employed – oftentimes they secure employment before they graduate from Texas A&M University. Also, some of our graduates find employment in school districts that offer a starting salary of $50,000 plus a monetary bonus just for teaching math or science. Texas school districts love to have Aggie teachers in their schools and they often hire Aggies before anyone else.
Teaching is a noble and rewarding profession. aggieTEACH will allow your students to impact future generations by teaching a subject they love and expanding high school students’ science content. aggieTEACH is an excellent way to for your students to give back to society, help others, and influence young lives. We encourage you to educate your students on the opportunities aggieTEACH offers and how it can impact their career options upon graduation.
