Tennessee teachers with add-on certificates in reading may have the opportunity to increase their job prospects while helping the state achieve its goal to better prepare young readers. With an add-on certificate in reading or a related field, you may be able to become a reading coach. Reading coaches play a vital role in Tennessee's effort to increase reading competency. After some additional graduate training, reading coaches can work to help an entire school improve their reading abilities. Of course, additional add-on certificates in other areas, like math and special education, can also broaden the number of classes you are able to teach, making you appear more valuable to school administrators. There are about 6,000 teachers in Tennessee who have completed 45 hours of coursework in addition to their master's degrees.
At Christian Brothers University in Memphis, teachers can enroll in an add-on certificate program that will certify them as reading specialists. The private, Christian school also offers certificate programs for teachers who wish to extend their licenses to other areas or become administrators. Belmont University in Nashville also offers a certificate program for licensed teachers who would like to become reading specialists. The program can be completed in a year through evening and weekend classes. Finally, Middle Tennessee University offers an add-on license in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL). Teachers with this license are in high-demand in all classrooms, as more and more students with limited English are joining all types of classes.
