Texas Teacher's License

The Author of this post is Solomon Dejesus

At least electricity rates in texas are not very expensive, they are about the only thing that is not. We recently relocated to Dallas because my husband is doing his residency at University of Texas Southwestern. I was a certified middle school English teacher in Georgia where we lived before. I figured that getting a teaching license in Texas would be easy and would not cost a lot. I was in for a big surprise. Luckily, I was able to find a job teaching at a small Christian school, but they still asked that their teachers be licensed by the state. I did not have to take any of the teaching exams again, they honored the exams I took in Georgia. I was surprised that I had to pay a five hundred dollar license transfer fee! That is more than it cost me to take the Georgia teacher’s licensing exam. On top of the license transfer fee, I had to pay for the actual license. That was another thirty-five. I hope that we don’t move again anytime soon.
