I recently got a NC teachers license to teach Chinese. I thought it would be for K-12 but it came back as "Grades 9-12". If I want to teach Chinese in a middle school in NC, will this license be ok or do I need to get it changed?

Thanks for any help

I started back in 1994 with 9-12 in math and science while teaching middle school. Either principal or district got the one to cover middle school. I did nothing, the licenses just showed up in my box.

Things may have changed but that is how it worked for me.

I doubt it will be a problem.

Good luck.

What grades is your original certification for? Did you apply in NC for K-12 license? I know when I was in NC I had to request middle school certs and 9-12 for language arts.

my original license is for ESL K-12. I took the ACTFL tests for chinese and scored the highest score. Then I submitted the scores to the licensure place to have the Chinese license added. I didn't know there were different levels for Chinese and never requested it one way or the other. It came back as a 9-12 license. I called the licensure section and they are going to look at it. Hopefully it won't matter or can be changed. I have a Middle School interested in hiring me for this school year.

COmplete a teacher certification program, pass the PRAXIS test for Chinese language, major in chinese language and get a teacher license.

Apply for teaching positions to teach Chinese language in NC schools you are interested in teaching at.
