This week, Harris County Department of Education Superintendent James Colbert Jr. met with aspiring educators in Spring ISD who began their teacher certification process last November through HCDE’s Center for Educator Success (CES).
These individuals are part of the CES’ inaugural Teacher Certification Cohort. Spring ISD, which has a District of Innovation (DOI) waiver, has a three-year partnership with the CES to “grow their own” teachers from within their district. The CES will certify and coach the district’s new teachers and add additional cohorts at the start of each year of the partnership.
