PREPARING FOR USA EMLPOYMENT

Most employers of education professionals or teacher recruiting agencies will first ask you, "Are you a certified teacher?" Therefore, it will be in your best interest if you can answer, "YES" at that time!  An additional question would be about your immigration status.

The process of securing a professional credential to teach in the US is an elaborate one. Each state board of educator licensure operates differently, and some will issue temporary (interim) licenses for you to practice, once you enter the U.S., until you can sit for the state required certification examination.  In most cases, it will be impossible for you as a foreign trained educator to enter the U.S. for employment in an educational setting without first having your educational records evaluation for possible issuance of educator licensure. The written evaluation of the professional credentials is done by designed agencies that are qualified to evaluate foreign credentials and transcripts. Some states issue temporary licenses to education professionals outside the continental USA. Some states require Praxis tests for master certification; some may require the candidate to take a few additional college courses. The later is the alternative route. The candidate can then be granted a full/master license upon completion of in-service alternative certification program. If an alternative certification courses are not available in a college where you will reside, a few alternative certification programs are available through distant education. In one or two states, a formally trained and certified teacher with graduate degree(s) and several years of teaching experience may be provincially considered for reciprocity license (5-year full certification). We will review your case and advise you accordingly. Our consultants are educators; so, we are able to guide you until you step at your employer-school doorstep. Please, follow all of the instructions carefully.
