SaRgE asked in Education & ReferenceTeaching · 1 decade ago

hi all.. How does a person earn licensure to teach in Ohio? What are the entry level requirements?

My teacher told us to find it on the "ode" website and wants us to list all of the requirements. I am having trouble finding them. Can anyone help me on this?

    ODE stands for the Ohio Department of Education. You'll get redirected to Oklahoma's if you are not careful. You need a bachelor's degree in an education area, you also have to student teach and undergo a background check (BCI & FBI) which you pay for. You also have to pass three Praxis exams, the last one takes place during your first year of teaching & you are evaluated by a state examiner. After all that you get a 5 year license.
