According to Texas Education Code § 5.001(2), a “classroom teacher” is “an educator employed in a school district who teaches at least four hours a day in an academic teaching environment.” According to the district, the woman`s employment contract said her work was after agreement. In addition, the district argued that she was not entitled to a trial contract under the terms of the TCNA, given that as a “teaching trainee” with a single test time certificate issued by SBEC, she was not a “class teacher”. Texas Education Code § 5.001(5) requires a class teacher to be “a person who must possess a certificate issued in accordance with Chapter B, Chapter 21.” Certificates are required for individuals who are not teaching assistants and who complete the certification with an Educator Preparation Program (EPP) that requires an internship (19 TAC § 230.36-230.37). .
