Fort Bend ISD supports student teachers and considers them our future FBISD teachers. We provide them with a quality teaching experience, professional development to prepare them to be teachers in FBISD, interviewing support, and mock interviews with principals. We consider our student teachers part of the FBISD family.
Student Teacher Application Process:
Step 1: Student teachers must inform their institution/program of their desire to student teach in FBISD.
Step 2: Institutions/programs provide the FBISD Talent Acquisition department (Debra.Erhart@fortbendisd.com) the following information:
- Student teacher name (Last, First)
- Student teacher email
- Student teacher phone number
- Content Area
- Information regarding more than one placement
- Desired quadrant number for placement
