How To Apply

Ready to start your new career as a teacher? Don’t wait, start your application today.

Step 1. Apply to a FWISD Teacher Resident position

To get started, you'll need to go through the hiring process for a teacher resident position with the Fort Worth Independent School District. That includes passing a FWISD background check.

Apply to FWISD


Step 2. Apply to the Master of Arts in Teaching and Teacher Education programs at Texas Wesleyan

Your online application takes about 15 minutes to complete. You can submit your app at any time — no need to wait to finish your FWISD app.

You’ll also have the option to upload your resume on the requirements page, which will save you a step later.

After you apply to the master's program, we'll send you information on how to apply to the Teacher Education Program.

The application for fall 2024 is now closed. Please check our website in early 2025 for the fall 2025 application.
