Alternative Certification Program For Future Teachers In Texas
DALLAS, SAN ANTONIO, HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I would not recommend Texas Teachers as an ACP. While they are most eager to get someone enrolled, they do not have adequate training or follow up procedures. The trainings are not effective and teach concepts and ideas used ten years ago. I learned the exact same things in my college courses ten years ago. Only one of the required trainings was beneficial and helpful. The presenter was engaging and knowledgeable, unlike the majority of the rest. There is a "cattle herd" feel to this organization as opposed to an individual approach.
The support provided when an intern is teaching is minimal and it feels as though if you fill out your paperwork, get your card scanned, and sit in a chair, you can get your license to teach through this company. If you are looking to actually learn how to be a teacher, I would not recommend this program.
