What happens if the state you're living in and working in changed their teaching and education requirements while you're still in school? It happens, but it's important not to panic. Many times, those already enrolled in college programs are exempt or grandfathered in to the pre-existing clauses when changes are made by the state legislator. Other states may allow a certain period of time for teachers and soon to be graduate teachers to earn additional certifications and degrees. Check with your counselor or board of education to find out the details.
