Certification Map - State by State Requirements

Certification Map is a good resource for US pre-service teachers and or teachers looking to teach in a different state. Certification Map is a product of the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California. Certification Map provides state by state teacher certification requirements. I checked the information provided by Certification Map regarding Maine's (where I teach) requirements against the state of Maine's Department of Education's requirements and found that Certification Map was accurate.

Applications for Education
In addition to teacher certification requirements, Certification Map provides a listing of average teacher salaries by state. This information may be of interest to college students currently enrolled in a teacher training program and considering where they would like to teach upon graduation.
