After that, they will continue teaching the curricu- lum and being observed. They will write ten book reports to prepare for their national exam and accrue 700 teaching hours an4 55 professional develop- ment hours. After graduating, teachers are eligible to take the national exam to become a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT).

With what they have learned in the past three weeks, they will be able to make a huge differ- ence in so many children's lives." The graduates include (as seen in photo attached from left to right): Susan Thimes (Tom Green Elementary), Evelyn Wehman (Fuentes Elementary), Tricia Bodden (Tobias Elementary), Iris Escandon (Tobias Elementary) Don't Mess With Texas "Dl't Mess with Texas" is the Texas Department of Transportation's litter.prevention slogan developed in 1986.
