Window of Opportunity to a Rewarding Career (or working retirement)

Teaching can be one of the most rewarding (and challenging) vocations. Earning your NYS teacher certification can be your window of opportunity to the world:

  • Take your teacher certification anywhere - Earning your teacher certification in New York allows you to meet most standards in other states, meaning you can become a teacher almost anywhere in the U.S. or abroad!
  • Start a new career - Share your knowledge and experience with eager young minds. You can prepare to earn NYS teacher certification in 16-24 months, with the potential to specialize in a content area!
  • Enjoy a rewarding retirement - If you are looking to remain active in your retirement, the best places in the U.S. to find a teaching job also happen to be the top retirement destinations (according to Forbes' list of "Best Places for a Working Retirement")
  • Learn while you work - At Roberts Wesleyan College, classes are offered in the evenings or online to fit the schedule of working professionals, like yourself.
