To be a teacher, you must meet all the requirements for a credential.California teaching credentials have similar basic requirements, but there are specific requirements for each type of teaching:
- Elementary (multiple subject) credential requirements
- Secondary/middle (single subject) credential requirements
- Special education (education specialist) credential requirements
Experience in a career other than teaching, even with an advanced degree, does not generally replace any requirements.
