Getting an advanced or add-on certificate opens up new professional possibilities for teachers, and may qualify you to teach in one of Maryland’s teacher shortage areas. The shortage areas, identified by the U.S. Department of Education, include English for speakers of other languages, foreign language, math, and science. Getting an endorsement to teach in one of these areas could make you more marketable and could also help you defer or cancel your federal student loans.
Another shortage area in Maryland is special education. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are almost 10,000 special education teachers in Maryland, earning an average of between $62,700 and $65,900, depending on grade level.
