During the 2011-2012 school year, just over 37 percent of New York teachers held the Master's Plus 30 distinction, which indicates coursework beyond the master's degree. Teachers who wish to stand out from their peers may elect to earn this distinction. One way to accomplish this is by earning an add-on or advanced certificate. An add-on or advanced certificate can prepare you to teach in new areas while simultaneously helping you improve your current classroom instruction. The U.S. Department of Education has designated bilingual, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), foreign language, library and school media, and career and technical education (vocational instruction) as teacher shortage areas for 2011-2012. In May 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that New York hired just over 5,000 vocational teachers.
At Columbia University's Teacher's College, teachers can earn a certificate in the high-demand area of TESOL education. Teachers who are certified in another area can enroll in the advanced certificate course to obtain a New York State Bilingual Extension Certificate. Dowling College offers post-graduate advanced certificate programs in the areas of technology, school business leadership and gifted education. A technology certificate will prepare you to work in the in-demand area of technology education. At the College of Saint Rose, teachers can earn an add-on certificate in birth-grade 12 special education, as well as professional special education. The U.S. Department of Education noted that special education was an in-demand area for the entire state during the 2010-2011 school year.
