Increase Your Teaching Capacity

Broadening your skill-set to stretch the boundaries of your capabilities shows fortitude and commitment to growth. Like many other professions focused on job preservation, educators are being urged to expand their talents to incorporate additional subject matter competencies into their credentials. Completing this program will enable you to add a Supplementary Authorization in Introductory Mathematics to your existing credential, moving you on your way to a more comprehensive career in teaching and raising your "desirability" factor. This program is aligned with the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) requirements to teach departmentalized classes to math grades 9 and below. The Supplementary Authorization in Introductory Mathematics is not No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Compliant. Additional units are needed to meet the Federal Regulation requirements for subject matter competency, with individual district approval.
