·COMMITTED to being change agents in the lives of students.
·STRONG campus partnerships with robust instructional coaching and feedback.


Effective Teacher Fellowship (ETF), HISD’s Alternative Certification Program (ACP) for novice teachers, is dedicated to recruiting individuals from non-educational backgrounds and careers who are passionate about students and teaching and learning. More importantly, we seek to recruit interns who are relentlessly committed to being change agents in the lives of the students our district serves and to becoming the most responsive and effective teachers they can be.

While our program works to certify teachers in a number of content areas, we are especially focused on the critical shortage areas facing our district: bilingual education, special education, and secondary math and science. As our program continues to grow, our vision is to be the premier Alternative Certification Program (ACP) in the country.

As a collective, we embody our district’s core values—determination , continuous improvement, focus on results, people-driven, and service—and work to live them through our work and actions every day. As a district-anchored ACP, our supports include robust instructional coaching and feedback, professional learning aligned to our Instructional Practice Rubric and certification exams, and strong campus partnerships.
