Earning an add-on certificate in special education, Chinese, or math may allow you to expand your teaching job opportunities in Texas. For the 2011-2012 school year, the U.S. Department of Education noted that all of the above areas were Texas teacher shortage areas. Special education teachers were specifically needed for the preschool age group. Teachers for those with hearing or visual impairments were also in demand. According to the Texas Education Agency, Texas employed only 77 Mandarin Chinese, 117 teachers for the hearing impaired, and only one teacher for the visually impaired through 2011. Because Texas desperately needs these teachers, earning an add-on certificate in these areas may improve your job prospects.
