Teachers who earn add-on certificates in Nebraska have the chance to improve both their school systems and their chances of finding a job. According to the Nebraska Department of Education, only just over 50 percent of classes in Nebraska are taught by teachers who are certified to teach in the given subject. Health and physical education and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes are often taught be teacher who lack an endorsement in the subject matter. Further, The U.S. Department of Education reported a number of additional teacher shortage areas in the state, including business education, family and consumer sciences and special education.
