A critical step in becoming a highly qualified Texas teacher is earning certification in a specific field of study. Educators can do just that at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, through its Alternative Certification Program.

A general information meeting on A&M-Kingsville’s Alternative Certification Program will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, April 27, in room 122 of Rhode Hall.

The meeting is targeting anyone that has a bachelor’s degree or higher and is interested in being certified to teach. The meeting will feature an informational presentation, along with a question and answer period. Applications to the program also will be available.

Child care will be provided to attendees by students of Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in Education.

Students enrolled in the Alternative Certification Program may pursue certification in a variety of subjects at the elementary, middle school and high school levels. Certification also is available in Bilingual Education for children through grade four, and Special Education for children through grade 12.

Interns in the program also are prepared to take TExES, the state exam that serves to certify teachers with the State Board for Educator Certification. Interns in the program are required to attend TExES review sessions and take a practice exam, with tutorial sessions also provided.

The event is sponsored by the Office of Student Services in the College of Education. For more information, call 361-593-4051.
