Mr.Gomez and Mrs.Lopez are the two persons
I interacted with the most while in the program.
Diana was very helpful and supportive. When I
informed her I had not been able to pass the
ELA 7-12 for the fifth time, she recommended
that I take the ELA 4-8. I listened and passed it
on the first try. She then recommended I take
the ESL, and once again I listened and also
passed it on the very first try. Mr.Gomez has
also been very supportive. The times he has
come to observe me he gives me advice and
positive feedback. He is always willing to help.
I wanted to thank you, Norma, for being Amazing at your job. I can’t express how great my transfer to South Texas Transition to teaching has been. You and Mrs. Diana are true professionals that have made this switch a very smooth and valuable one. I wanted to thank you for resending the email about the PPR preparation course, with my busy schedule I overlooked it and nearly lost my chance to retake the PPR, but you made sure to get a response from me. With that said I wanted to let you guys know that I passed my PPR (258) and it only took me a few weeks, compared to the 2 yrs I wasted at Teacher Builder. You guys made this possible with the help of Mr. Gomez and his AMAZING STAFF, This was really a team effort, and I couldn’t have done it without you guys. I am blessed to have transferred over to a real AC program with great expectations. I am happy and excited to be working with such a professional program that will help me further my chances of getting a teaching job.
As an Independent Personnel Management Consultant for Texas school districts, I work with multiple Alternative Certification Programs to ensure districts are in compliance with state law. I have had the pleasure of working with South Texas Transition to Teaching and would certainly recommend them as an ACP entity. They are very responsive to emails and phone calls, are knowledgeable in laws and regulations, and maintain a professional relationship in all manner of communication.
My experience with South Texas ACP has been nothing but positive and motivating. My field supervisor, Mr. Gilbert Gomez, has been nothing but inspiring. Despite whatever reservations I had about becoming an educator at first, so much so that I didn’t finish the program the first time around and took a sabbatical, it was Mr. Gomez and his anecdotes that helped push me through. This program has helped me to fully realize my love for teaching and for aiding my students. I could not be more grateful for having had the opportunity to work with this program. To this day when asked what program I would recommend for attaining a teaching certificate, I have no issue in highly recommending South Texas ACP. You guys are absolutely fantastic.
Mr. J. Alejos –
With the help of South Texas Transition to Teaching – ACP, I have successfully challenged three TExES exams. I challenged, each on the first attempt. I passed the ELA-R 4-8 with a score of 276 out of 300, the ESL Supplemental with 271 out of 300, and the PPR with 288 out of 300. I am grateful to Mr. Gomez, who teaches his classes with humor, warmth, and enthusiasm, and also Norma, who is always so helpful in guiding me through the certification process and promptly answers any questions I may have.
Thank you and your team for everything! You all are the best!!
South Texas Transition to Teaching has been a blessing in my life. Everyone in the program was a great asset to my learning as a teacher. I learned so much and the staff in the program were very patient with whatever questions I had. I have nothing negative to say about this program.
I honestly believe South Texas Transition to Teaching ACP has been SO helpful throughout this whole process. You all have been there for me and have provided me with some of the best mentors to guide me through the process.
I am very comfortable with my decision in becoming a teacher. It is a rewarding career that makes you see education and people in a very different light. The program was great! There is a lot of support when you need it. I strongly recommend this program if you want to become a teacher!
I liked the lectures Mr Gomez gave. He talked a lot about his experiences and he gives great advice. Diana was the most helpful. She was always there to answer my questions.
