IDEA offers a student teacher program in which participants are prepared for the possibility of a full-time teaching position at IDEA. IDEA student teachers can be placed in grades K through 12 and at all of our campuses throughout the Rio Grande Valley. Student teachers must indicate preference for student teaching at IDEA to their university during the semester before placement. The university will then coordinate with IDEA’s Staffing team in order to determine the school and classroom placement of the student teacher. Student teaching is a great way to learn about IDEA culture while being mentored by an IDEA teacher who has achieved exemplary student performance, thus creating a competitive advantage in the application process for a teaching position.
If you have questions about IDEA's student teacher program, please contact the Talent Recruiter for your university:
