Will I still be considered for a teaching position if I do not have certification?
Every application is personally reviewed by a Human Resources administrator and given consideration. Some of the factors involved in evaluating each application are the needs of the position, the experience and training of the candidate, and the pool of candidates available.  Each person hired for a teaching position must be eligible for some type of certification through the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), but there are a variety of options available.
