Clinical Teaching Application and Forms

Interns are responsible for securing a teaching position. However, TMATE faculty and staff assist whenever possible.

During the year-long internship, an intern is employed by the district within an approximate 150 mile radius of Fort Worth; paid as a first year teacher; eligible for benefits; reported as the teacher-of-record for retirement purposes; teaches with a Probationary Certificate; and enrolled in an internship course in both the fall and spring semesters.

Intern Handbook

In the event an intern does not secure employment, two options are available:

  1. TMATE will keep intern files active for two years after beginning coursework which allows time for students to secure an internship.  If after two years an internship is not secured, TMATE files will be deactivated.

  2. Complete certification requirements by serving as a clinical teacher.

    During clinical teaching, an intern co-teaches at the district for 15-16 weeks; receives no pay or benefits; and is enrolled in the clinical teaching course during one semester. Tarleton will secure the clinical teaching placement based on the application request.
