Latin Teaching Credential
According to the mandate of No Child Left Behind, a teaching credential is required for instructors at public high schools. Some private schools have been following suit in requiring credentials of their teachers.
A teaching credential certifies two things: that the teacher has competence in her/his subject matter as stipulated by the state, and that the teacher has completed the state mandated education courses which range from teaching methodology to addressing students with special needs.
Cal State Long Beach has the only active Latin Teaching Credential program in Southern California. Follow this link to the Single Subject Credential Program website, then click on the Subject Areas link, then the Languages Other Than English Education link, then the Latin link.
If you have a credential from another state, the Latin Teaching Credential Coordinator, Dr Kathryn Chew, can review your transcripts for subject matter competency qualification.
