Currently, almost 400 University of Houston students are enrolled in the teachHOUSTON program. Our students major in chemistry, physics, biology, biochemistry and mathematics and possess deep content knowledge in their field. In addition, after completing courses in educational pedagogy and over 800 hours of field-based teaching practice and observation, they graduate fully certified in their field.
This year, almost fifty teachHOUSTON students will graduate with math and science degrees AND teaching certificates. 90% will be teaching in the greater Houston area.
Our program has course sequences tailored for students who take their first teachHOUSTON course as freshman, taking one teaching course per semester as well as for the student who discovers the joy of teaching later in their undergraduate career.
