Aggie Educators Portal
The Aggie Educator Portal serves as hub for Texas A&M educator candidates to upload state-required training, certification exams and field-experience documents. Students will also use this site to submit various artifacts to their teaching portfolio.
This is the same site used for the admission process to SEHD’s educator preparation program. If you have questions about your program or academic progress, contact your program coordinator, advisor, or instructor.

What We Offer
Field experiences through the College of Education and Human Development provide premier service for students requiring field placements that reflect the University’s core values of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity and selfless service.
Initial/clinical teachers, interns (post-baccalaureate) and advanced/ professional students are assigned to a school campus for real-world experiences in order to make course-to-field connections.
Clinical teachers, for example, spend an entire semester in the field to meet CEHD’s clinical teaching requirements which to surpass the State Board for Educator Certification requirements. The clinical teaching semester is one of the most important components of our initial teacher education programs. Students are provided with a cooperating teacher and a university supervisor —each role is essential or the success of our clinical teachers in their development from pre-service teacher to professional educator.
Each certification program/course in CEHD’s EPP network is responsible for organizing field placements, including:
- Undergraduate teacher certification,
- Professional/non-classroom certification, and
- aggieTEACH secondary teacher certification programs for non-education majors.
You will complete your degree plan before completing your clinical teaching experience the final semester before graduation. All field experience students and clinical teachers are required to have liability insurance.
Our certification programs offer an evidence-based curriculum, outstanding faculty, supportive cooperative teachers/mentors, and site supervisors to ensure you are Day-1 Ready to be a professional educator.
