Can you confirm that all I need for the 3 year non-renewable license is a bachelor's with a math major in order to teach (secondary/HS) math, without having to take every individual course listed? Then for the 5 year renewable I need -to take/pass praxis 5161 and the VCLA -take 15 (maybe 18) credit hours for the professional studies license which includes -- Human growth and development -- Curriculum and Instruction (I dont think this is needed though for 6-12) -- Classroom and Behavior Management -- Foundations of education -- Reading (6 hours) and for math this one is confusing for me - lastly teach full time for a year All of these requirements are on the web but unfortunately they are under the Virginia Legislative Assembly which isn't always 100 per cent clear. If you've read this far and you have gone this route where did you take all of these classes? Online, night classes, etc? Any recommendations, specifically for the Richmond area? Lastly, if you're not in Virginia but have taken online classes that would satisfy the above what programs would you recommend (or possibly even recommend I avoid)? Thanks, I can never seem to make these question posts short.
