  • I am a certified teacher in FL, but have become certified with a 4 year degree. You have to take 3 test, General Knowledge, Professional Teaching Exam, and Subject Area exam.

    But, a school can hire you on with a temp. certificate, and within one year you will have to complete either courses or workshops to gain a real certification.

  • I hate to tell you, but I don't think credits from a Bulgarian University are going to transfer, but you never know. You will have to go back to University for a US certificate.
