    I was reading in my Elementary Ed brochure that a few other states accept the FL teaching certificate. It said that I could find the information on which states at the FLDOE website, however, I looked everywhere and couldn't find anything on there :confused:

    I was just curious because there are a few states that I'd love to move to (if there is a job opening at that time) and wondered if anyone here knew? :)

    Thank you!

    Many states will allow a person with a certificate from another state to teach within a grace period (which varies from one to three years, typically) while fulfilling the local requirements for HQ and all that.

    You might try checking the teacher-licensure Web pages of the states you're interested in.

    Another sign of the bad state of affairs for teachers in Florida. :( Sigh.

    I think you'll need to check with the DOE in the other states you're interested in.

    I believe in my search, there was full reciprocity with North Carolina. In New York, you'll be granted an initial license but will need to take the NY teacher's exams.
