If you are interested in earning an add-on certificate in Montana, special education and reading offer two excellent opportunities. According to the U.S. Department of Education, Montana's teacher shortage areas include art, career and technical education, math, music, science, world languages, and special education. However, a number of other factors suggest that teachers who obtain certificates in special education and reading are likely to find jobs. For example, Montana's Department of Public Instruction notes that over 15 percent of teachers in special education are not highly qualified. Further, the state's public schools just received a grant worth over $7 million to improve literacy. In May 2010, the state hired over 600 special education teachers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
At Montana State University - Billings, students can earn an add-on certificate in reading that can prepare them to help Montana schools reach their literacy goals. The university also offers an add-on certificate in school counseling. School counselors were a high-need area for the 2011-2012 school year. Montana State University in Bozeman offers an add-on certificate program that will prepare you to work as a library media specialist. The easily accessible program is offered completely online. Finally, DePaul University of Chicago offers an online, add-on certificate program in special education in which Montana teachers can enroll. The program prepares teachers for both the teaching and assessment of special needs students.
