Fitness to Teach Policy
Successful teaching requires a combination of both academic and interpersonal skills. Although interpersonal skills do not ensure the success of a teacher, the lack of them will ensure failure, regardless of how academically capable the teacher is.
The Texas State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) specifies that institutions preparing educators have the responsibility to certify the knowledge and skills of its teacher candidates. To that end, a committee composed of representatives from departments across the College of Education & Human Development developed the Fitness to Teach Policy. See below for links to the policy and all related forms that provide an overview of the FTT policy.
