How to check a teacher's state certification

SBG Photo

SAN ANTONIO - Want to check the teaching certificate status of your child's teacher? It's easy to search for that on the Texas Education Agency's website.

All you need is the name of the teacher and you can pull up their certification to see if it is valid, expired, suspended or revoked. The TEA even posts a special notice on the certificate if the teacher is currently being investigated for alleged misconduct.

It also tells you what subjects and grade levels the teacher is certified to teach.

Of course, several teachers may have the same name, so go to your school's website to see if they list a middle name or initial to use in your search.
