licensureDo you want to take your career to the next level? Have you ever wanted to be considered a Master Teacher? Receiving the highest recognized status as a teacher in the state of Illinois and nationally is something we want to support. The process can seem daunting and overwhelming and often keeps teachers in our region from pursuing this opportunity.

The Regional Office of Education has partnered with Illinois State University and the National Board to provide a cohort experience for you. We know achieving this level of recognition is better together than alone.
