Obtaining your teaching certificate varies a little bit from state to state. In general, you need to first complete a teacher education program either through an accredited ungraduate or gradaute college degree program. In your teacher education program you will have to take required courses based on what level and subject area you wish to teach. In addition, you will need to complete student teaching which some schools call a teaching internship. You will spend a semester teaching at the age level and subject you wish to become certified in. Usually this teaching internship lasts from 12-16 weeks in length. You spend the entire school day in the school teaching and learning with help from your supervising teacher. To gain teaching certification you will also need to take the Praxis I or II standardized test. Each state board of education outlines which test to take and the minimum score you need in order to pass. You will also complete a teaching application packet with your state department of education.
Each year, one of the most popular degrees to obtain is a degree in education. While many people with a degree in education strive to become a teacher, they will not be able to become a teacher unless they receive the necessary teacher certification. In order to obtain teacher certification, there are many steps that a person will need to follow. The first step in obtaining teacher certification is to fully understand all of the requirements that your state, or county, requires for teachers in order to be certified to teach. While most certification programs are similar, each jurisdiction has slightly different rules, which could affect whether or not you are approved for certification. In general, the first step in earning teacher certification is to get a degree in education. Many colleges across the country offer a wide variety of educational courses. Most students will need to choose what level of education they wish to teach. Those wishing to teach elementary school age children should major in elementary education. Those looking to teach high school should major in secondary education. Another step that is required for a person to obtain teacher certification is to teach for a short period of time as a student teacher. Many jurisdictions will require a prospective teacher to teach as a student teacher for up to three months. During this time, a student teacher will begin by shadowing an experienced teacher, but will eventually begin to teach their own classes and create their own lesson plans. Following successful completion of the student teaching program, and all required coursework, a teacher will be ready to graduate with their degree in education. Upon graduation, the prospective teacher will need apply for their teacher certification. While in some jurisdictions this is a simple process, others may require a person pass a written test. Once certification is received, the person is qualified and approved to begin working as a teacher.
