Thank you for your interest in Mountain View College’s Alternative
Teacher Certification program! We are delighted that you are considering
our program in your pursuit as a certified teacher.
The Texas State Board of Educator Certification has given Mountain View College a very unique charge
as we help meet the needs of the teacher shortage and give Texas school
children what they deserve—highly qualified teachers.
The Alternative Teacher Certification Program at Mountain View
College meets in an intensive and rigorous academic environment for
several months in order to expedite the teacher certification process.
Our program consists of several hours of training in Pedagogy and
Professional Responsibilities and select content areas. Program
participants are eligible to take the TExES exam after completion of the
required program training. Once the candidate has taken the TExES exam
and demonstrated content mastery in his/her selected area, s/he is
eligible to establish employment as Teachers-of-Record at an elementary,
middle or high school.
Thank you again for your interest. We look forward to working with you in the near future.
