Endorsements

All teachers must be certified in at least one endorsement area. The endorsement area specifies the subjects and grade levels of certification. Some endorsements limit teachers to a certain grade range. Some endorsements are not limited to a specific range of grades and cover Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade.

For a current listing of the endorsements offered at each university visit the PESB website.

Tip- Demand for teaching positions can vary.K-3 openings are typically more competitive while areas like Special Education, Math and Science are in short supply.  Ask yourself, “Will the endorsement(s) I select, make me a competitive applicant?” Click here to view a list of state identified shortage areas.
