Re: PGCEi to license for new US citizen and teacher at US independent school

I just recently posted my experience (not the same, but similar to yours) here: https://internationalschoolsreview.com/v-web/bulletin/bb/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=7775 In short: If you try to do the CT route, they will most likely ask you to complete a series of credits in things like US History, Arts and...

There's no source for his made-up number. He will keep replying things that will vary from distracting that specific fact (that he cannot provide a specific source for s number he stated as s fact) to entirely unrelated statements to distract from this. He will keep doing this until you give up, as ...

Re: Getting a teaching license - my personal experience

For example? Again, I'm trying to be practical and down to earth. Having special specific examples would be great. If you don't have any, it's fine. As I tell my students, saying"I don't know" can be a valid reply in some situations If you have also a suggested CLEP for US history, which is one of t...

Re: Getting a teaching license - my personal experience

Sorry PsyGuy, I know you never accept an error, but saying "such as UPe" is not correct, because regionally accredited universities are NOT "like UPe". At the time of this post, UPe is not "like" regionally accredited colleges, because, well, it's not. As I mentioned on a previous reply to you. If y...

Re: Which state offers a teaching license to a PGCEi holder?

I am sure there are some that fall in those categories you mention. I would be curious as to what percentage out to of people interested in NACES evaluations they would represent though. But yes PsyGuys, you are correct in that there are some non US teachers who study in the US and some US teachers ...

Re: Getting a teaching license - my personal experience

UoPeople is not regionally accredited (yet). Thus, taking CLEPS and adding them to their transcript would not be acceptable towards meeting the CT requirements I mentioned.

Re: Which state offers a teaching license to a PGCEi holder?

Yes, my post referred to non US applicants, totally agree. There are exceptions, but it is Non US applicants who are concerned about NACES evaluations given...well, the fact they are not US graduates.

Thanks for complementing. I tried to be practical and down to earth, but I guess it's good to have.... Well...your "style" legalese(I think there was some overlap but that was expected, I guess). About CT: they don't accept CLEP. They clearly and explicitly told me they only accept credits that have...

Re: Which state offers a teaching license to a PGCEi holder?

Good for them.
And I am happy you recognise I can disagree. I would love to see a state listing they accept NACES approved evaluators, but prefer only some of them, I haven't seen this.

As mentioned earlier, most common pathways mentioned in this forum for non Americans would take SPANTRAN.

Re: Which state offers a teaching license to a PGCEi holder?

I disagree with your last statement. Most states accept any evaluator as long as it is NACES accredited. Since SPANTRAN is NACES accredited, it would be accepted just like WES. There may be s couple of exceptions, but for the most part, it works just as well. Works for HI, CT, MA which are the most ...

Getting a teaching license - my personal experience

Every now and then people seem to ask the same questions (myself included). I would like to share my personal experience with several of the processes that have been suggested here before while trying to get a teaching license. I learned a lot in the process, so I will share as much as possible so t...

Re: Which state offers a teaching license to a PGCEi holder?

Curious about this. If a NACES evaluation were to find his PGCEi equivalent to teacher training within a specific age range and field, would the OP not be able to get a HI license? Not all NACES evaluation services are equal. Speaking from personal experience, I have seen different NACES evaluators ...

Re: Parking a HI license for a non American

Thanks for the info. Just wondering: 1. How exactly does NJ check for citizenship? Simply curious. 2. About HI renewal: I did read that the renewal was either a school leader signing off (as you mention) or a rather long process involving lots of documentation. In terms of having the school leader j...

Parking a HI license for a non American

A few years ago I got myself a Standard license from Hawaii. I would ideally like to "park" this somewhere that does not require so many hoops to jump through when renewing. As a non-US citizen, what are my options? Most discussions on parking licenses seem a few years old, so I am not sure if the i...
