    Thank you, you are the only one on this blog that seems to understand what I am asking. I agree about certain states making you go through some form of difficulty,but when I do narrow a state(s) down I have to also worry about keeping my current certification while being able to gain another states certification. The most difficult part would be finding a job. I hope to gain a min. of 3 years experience and hope the state I pick only requires a workshop rather than a exam

    The chances are a state's school district will not even interview you unless you get certified in that state; in other words, a clear credential, prior to getting an interview.

    You have to contact the department of education in each state to find out whether you have to go through any hoops. Nobody here can help you with that.

    There is no such thing as "reciprocity" in teaching licenses.

    I found in a local school district there were 45--count 'em, 45--applicants for three positions in special education. This is allegedly a "high needs" area. It isn't.

    Looked at TSPC, and Oregon has some reciprocity with Florida re exams. The problem is getting a job here, which is just about impossible.

    This. Around here it's not uncommon to have hundreds of applicants. I applied for a job in NE OH that had over 1500 applicants for ONE position.

    I don't know about from Florida, but I received GA teacher certification from another state (NY) easily. I submitted papers documenting at least three years of experience, my transcripts, and evidence of my cert. I received the GA cert in about two weeks. So, Florida to GA might be similar.
