How to Become a Teacher in Indiana

You have decided to become a teacher. Great decision! You are about to embark on a journey that will change your life and that of those you teach each day. Here are the steps that are needed to become a certified teacher in Indiana.

Choose What You Want to Teach

Is working with high school seniors on large scale projects what keeps you going? Would you like to teach kindergartners the alphabet? Maybe you want to help those students that have special needs? Deciding which grade level(s) or subject area(s) you wish to teach can be tough, but something you should consider early in the process. If you are really unsure, talk to a counselor or advisor for a bit of information about several interesting areas. You can also check out the Indiana Department of Education website for information on educators, schools, and students in the state.

Complete Your Education Requirements for Teaching in Indiana

As with all states in the U.S., Indiana requires a Bachelor's Degree as the minimum requirement to teach. In addition, candidates will be required to complete a teacher preparation program. This requirements should be fulfilled through an accredited college or university as decided by CAEP, formerly NCATE and TEAC.

An option offered by many of these accredited schools is the blended or joint program. This type of program allows you to receive a Bachelor's Degree as well as a teaching certificate upon successful completion of all requirements. This is often an intensive program, but one that shortens the time it will take to become a teacher for those who know that they want to teach from early on.

Complete a Teacher Preparation Program

Public school teachers in Indiana should have a teaching license. The same is typically true of private or charter schools, but actual requirements can vary from school to school. Educator preparation programs involve both set curriculum and fieldwork aspects. In order to be successful in these programs you must take and pass, often with a set GPA, classes on technology, pedagogy, and teaching methods among others. You must also successfully complete observation hours, reflective writings, and student teaching. Each college may vary slightly in the number of required hours or specific assignments. If you are successful in all aspects then you will likely receive your Bachelor's Degree and teaching license.

Alternative Teacher Certification in Indiana

Transition to Teaching

If you have a Bachelor's Degree in another state, but wish to become a teacher in Indiana, you can enter a Transition to Teaching program at a college or university. This helps professionals from other states become teachers.

Continue your Education and Professional Development

The teaching profession regards professional development as a necessary part of knowledge acquisition for every kind of educator. In fact, in most states, continuing professional development is required for renewal of teacher licensure. Professional development planning includes choosing programs that teach and evaluate instructional and leadership practices. Professional development should be evidence-based, and contain a self-evaluative component in order to expand teachers' practice both in and beyond the classroom. In addition to improving practice, ongoing professional development will aid teachers in making their career and salary goals.

Professional Development in Indiana

Indiana Purdue and Fort Wayne Universities have formed a strategic network in order to offer comprehensive professional development to teachers. Additionally, the Professional Learning Board provides online continuing education on a national basis. The state of Indiana has taken its cue accordingly and is currently deploying a strategic campaign to become a national leader for eLearning professional development initiatives through public platforms like Twitter.
