Welcome to the Credentials Office


If you are considering a career in education, you will find that it is a profession like no other.  Teaching is an art, a science, a way of life, a vocation, an inspiration, and a passion.

As an educator, you will experience the joy of making a difference in the lives of your students on a daily basis.  You get to share in the wonder and excitement as you help children learn about themselves and discover the world around them.

You will also become a life-long learner, digging deeper into your subject matter and incorporating new ideas in your own classroom.  Every day will be different, holding a unique set of challenges and rewards.  By becoming an educator, you will change your own life and touch countless others.
