To become a teacher, you’ll need to do more than complete the requirements for a B.A. in Education at Bethel. You’ll also have to obtain a teaching license. To do so, you’ll need to demonstrate that you are competent in the basic skills areas of reading, writing, and mathematics; teaching abilities; and the content area of your choice. You’ll demonstrate these skills by passing standardized exams.
The Minnesota Board of Teaching receives the results of these tests, along with the federal Secretary of Education under Title II of the Higher Education Act.
We recommend the website ToBecomeATeacher.org for students in process to becoming a teacher, including scholarships, career development skills, and licensing information.
