Teacher Certification

Teacher certification is a process in the educational system that assures that public school teachers possess minimum qualifications.  Each state determines its own certification standards.  Increased mobility among teachers suggests that teacher candidates should have information about general requirements for certification and about where to locate particular state requirements.  Certification is a process by which the state evaluates the credentials of prospective teachers to ensure that they meet the professional standards set by the state education agency.  Certification ratifies the quality of teachers’ competence in subject area, educational methodology, teaching skills, and potential classroom management ability.
