No. A felony conviction disqualifies one from obtaining a teaching certificate in any state.

Actually I know that it depends on the state as far as how their laws go. obviously if you have a violent conviction, a sexual related conviction or a drug related conviction, you would not be allowed to get a teaching certificate. I am asking however, about a non-violent, non-sexual, non-drug related crime. I had read previously that Ohio's law is that you must wait 5 years from the date of your conviction and I was just wondering if this was in fact true.
