Teacher certification reciprocity does help in moving from state-to-state, but you must meet the teacher certification requirements of the new state regardless. Therefore it is important to know the specific certification requirements for the state in which you plan to teach.
Please refer to each state’s Department of Education to learn how to obtain that particular state’s teacher certification. We have listed Department of Education links for individual states below to assist you with planning. But please do not contact the School of Education with certification requirement questions for states other than Colorado. Please contact the Department of Education for the specific state in which you are interested.
