Is your education program state approved?
The Elementary Education major at Trinity College contains all the coursework and testing necessary to teach in Florida public schools. Upon completion of the program, the student would apply for a certificate of eligibility from the Florida Department of Education. This allows the person to be hired in a Florida public school. Once employed, the person would apply for a Florida Temporary Certificate and, after teaching successfully for a period of time, the person would then apply for the Florida Professional Certificate. Additionally, the college is on the Florida list of approved schools for continuing education of current teachers. Students intending to teach in other states are responsible for knowing the requirements of the state in which they intend to teach.
