The Dallas-Fort Worth metro area offers something for everyone—the two cities have thriving downtowns, an abundance of culture, and all the perks of big cities. Drive out to the suburbs, though, and you can enjoy a more small-town vibe. With sunny weather most of the year, you can be out and about taking advantage of what the area has to offer. Below are some more considerations to help you determine if the Dallas-Fort Worth region is a good fit for you.
- A minimum 2.75 undergraduate GPA
- Proof of U.S. citizenship, national/permanent resident status, or deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA)
What Will I Teach in DFW?

- Bilingual EC-6: Elementary bilingual teacher
- Must be proficient in reading, writing, speaking, and listening in Spanish
- Core subjects 4-8, ELAR/social studies 4-8, or math/science 4-8: 4th to 8th grade teacher

- ELAR, math, or science 7-12: 7th - 12th grade teacher
