National Teacher’s Certification 

In terms of a National Teacher’s Certification, there really is no way to become certified to teach in every state with a single teacher certification. Your teacher certification can be transferred from state to state via your state's reciprocity agreements with other states, of you can apply for a National Board Certification to make the process of transferring your teachers certification more simple. But the fact remains that there is no single way to be certified to teach in every state.

Every state has its own program for obtaining a teaching certificate. These programs all share certain common elements. In general, you need at least a Bachelor’s Degree in an academic subject from an accredited college or university, you must complete teacher preparation training, and then you must pass a basic skills examination.
