Transition to Teaching
Main Content

Welcome from the
State Superintendent of Schools:

Currently, West Virginia is facing an optimal challenge-to place a competent and qualified individual in each of its public school classrooms.

There is nothing more important to the future of our state than our children, and their present well-being as well as their futures depends heavily upon the adults who teach and mentor them in school. Teaching is an honorable profession, unsurpassed in its intrinsic rewards. I invite you to join the ranks of West Virginia's dedicated and compassionate educators.

West Virginia currently offers various routes to alternative teacher certification. Contact us to see which one would work best for you. Bright minds are calling to you; help mold the future of West Virginia's public school students, answer the call and become a teacher.
