According to the Vermont Board of Education's 2010 strategic plan, the first goal the state's schools hope to achieve is improving their teaching workforce. Teachers in the state should "model transformative and accountable leadership practices." Teacher shortages make it difficult for Vermont to accomplish that goal. According to the U.S. Department of Education, Vermont's 2011-2012 teacher shortage areas included ESL, health, and modern languages. In addition, the state's 2011 fiscal year data shows that only three percent of full time employees were kindergarten teachers. With an add-on certificate in teaching an age group, such as kindergarten or preschool, or another content area, like health, you will be prepared to fill a variety of teaching positions within Vermont.
At Vermont's College of St. Joseph, you can earn an add-on certificate in an area like secondary education, reading or special education. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Vermont employed around 400 special education teachers in May 2010. Marlboro College offers an online certificate in instructional technology with a focus on online teaching. The program is a good choice for Vermont teachers who want to fill current needs - the U.S. Department of Education noted that educational technology specialists were in need during the 2011-2012 school year. At the University of Vermont, teachers can earn an advanced certificate in integrated studies, a self-designed program in which teachers work with professors to design their own coursework and learning objectives.
