If inspiring children to unlock their potential calls to you, my team at the State Department of Education stands ready to help you on the path to becoming an educator.
Whether you are in high school, college, or considering a career change, there is a pathway to becoming an Idaho Educator that is right for you. To find your path, please explore the resources on this page or visit the Certification and Professional Standards webpage.
Once you earn your educator certificate, I invite you to stay right here in Idaho. You will find a caring, supportive education environment focused on student learning and improving instruction.
I would be remiss if I did not share what I discovered more than 20 years ago: Idaho is a beautiful place to live and raise a family and to be an educator!
Again, please reach out to my team if you need a little help navigating the path to becoming an educator.
