States that accept FL Teaching Certificate.

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

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.
Education isn't what you know. It's what you can do (and fake, intelligently) with what you know.

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

Looking for a job
Lets see...

I google "florida teaching reciprocity"


It seems that Florida has signed the Instate Agreement for Reciprocity. It can probably be any of the states on that list.

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.
