Home > All States and Cities > Arkansas Online Education > Arkansas Teaching Certification

If you want to teach in Arkansas public schools, you need to know the Arkansas teaching certification requirements for elementary or secondary school teaching positions. First, you must have a bachelor's or higher degree from a program approved by the Office of Teacher Quality at the Arkansas Department of Education. The program must be accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and comply with standards of their respective specialized professional associations and the state. Teachers in Arkansas are licensed, and to obtain a teaching license in Arkansas you must successfully complete the following tests:

  • Praxis I: reading, writing, math
  • Praxis II: content test for all parts required
  • Praxis III: principles of learning and teaching

In addition, applicants must successfully complete the required criminal background check. Novice teachers may be assigned a site-based mentor, and the Praxis III performance assessment can be scheduled upon a joint decision by the novice teacher and the mentor.

Fortunately for prospective teachers, there are online Arkansas teacher certification programs which meet the state's requirements. Because many prospective teachers in this economy cannot afford the time for campus-based teaching programs in Arkansas, online Arkansas teacher certification programs allow you to get your teaching degree while fulfilling work or family obligations.

The National Education Association (NEA) statistics show that Arkansas teacher salaries in the elementary and secondary grades averaged $47,472 for the 2008-2009 school year, a 3.7% increase over the previous year. There were 35,353 teachers employed in Arkansas during the same time period.
