Resources for Future Teachers

Teaching is an important profession, and takes a lot of dedication and work to achieve. Applying for scholarships can help pay for tuition and school supplies, which can help students pay for potentially expensive education degrees. There will be exams to take in order to get certified as well. In Texas, that is the TExES exam. There are many resources out there to help you register and study for this exam, including study guides and practice TExES tests.

Tami Smith: Future Texas Teacher

1. How does receiving this scholarship from TExEStest.org help you further your education and ultimately reach your career goals?

Receiving this scholarship helps me further my education by helping me be able to support my two children while I complete internship 2, which is my final stage of the teaching program. This is giving me the opportunity to not worry about money and focus on developing myself as an educator. This scholarship will also help me with purchasing the materials I will be using to teach my lessons this fall. Allowing me to create fun and engaging activities for my kindergarten students. This leads me to ultimately completing my dream of becoming a teacher.

3. Which university do you plan to attend or currently attend?

I currently attend University of Houston - Clear Lake.
