About the OTESSS

Our office has assisted thousands of students to become PreK-12 school teachers in Western Tennessee and the Mid-South. We help several hundred students get their initial teacher license or additional endorsement license each year. Each semester we admit hundreds of students into the Teacher Education Program, while advising roughly 1,500 to navigate through their undergraduate or graduate degree programs.

Our Office of School Based Clinical Practice works with the surrounding school systems to place students in field experiences, Ready2Teach candidates in year-long residencies and graduate candidates in their final Clinical Teaching Semester (CTS). We do everything possible to prepare them to pass the Tennessee requirements for teacher licensure and to be ready to teach in any kind of PreK-12 school setting.
