Participating School Districts

UHD is the ideal place to prepare for a successful urban teaching career. UH-Downtown is the most culturally diverse institution of higher learning in the state. Our enrollment reflects the city, giving us an edge in developing a program that works for urban schools. We are currently working with nine school districts:

  • Aldine Independent School District
  • Alief Independent School District
  • Cy Fair Independent School District
  • Fort Bend Independent School District
  • Galena Park Independent School District
  • Houston Independent School District
  • Humble Independent School District
  • Klein Independent School District
  • Spring Branch Independent School District
  • Stafford Municipal School District

As the minority populations in Texas and Houston continue to grow, so will the need for teachers who are bilingual and sensitive to cultural diversity. The local demand for teachers reflects a nationwide trend: student enrollments are increasing while the supply of qualified teachers is declining.

A teacher trained at UHD will be required to master the core courses plus the specialization courses for the certification being sought. You'll master the subject you teach and know a variety of methods and technologies to help each student.

From the beginning, you'll be learning in the inner-city schools. During three semesters in these Houston public schools, faculty from UHD, working with outstanding inner-city teachers, will make sure you receive "real world" knowledge and skills.
