"I wanted to take the time to tell you
how pleased I have been with the MRT training I received.. The training was excellent, and has greatly
enhanced my performance as a literacy specialist in
Marble Falls ISD. The MRT program provided by ESC Region
12 not only helped to enhance my professional development
and prepared me for the MRT test, but it also validated
the knowledge I had gained in my 10 years as a teacher.
I am very grateful to have been a part of this outstanding
program, and I highly recommend it to other teachers
who are seeking to become reading specialists. The
MRT class changed my professional outlook, and has
opened the door to further opportunities in the future.
