I am a new hire K teacher with DODEA. I'm certified pk-3rd in VA.

Why does my DODEA provisional certificate only have PK and K?

haha Probably because DoDEA has separate requirements and offers different certifications for Pre-K, K and 1-8. What did they have you qualified for on your application?

It's only an issue if you really want to ever teach above K. If you don't then you are better off without it on your certificate.

If you want to teach elementary some...See More

TeacherMama K in Daegu They qualified me for PK, K, and 1-3.

I don't really want to teach 1-3. But I also want to make myself more marketable should I want to transfer at some point.

haha Write to whoever issued you your DoDEA certificate and ask them what you are missing for elementary certification, Barring that find out who the licensing person is for your area and write them.

EmilyG So where/when/how do we get our DODEA provisional? I logged into the system to look it up, and it was blank. My colleague who was hired last year also has hers show up blank as well.

haha I recall they sent my provisional to me via email. If you still haven't received it I would follow up with whoever is your area licensure person is.
