Public secondary education in Tennessee.?

Does anyone know anything about the process of getting hired on as a teacher in Tennessee if I don’t have an education degree?

I have a science degree and taught for three years in another state and moved to Tennessee.

I tried the website but it isn’t too clear on what exactally to do.

You need a Tennessee credential. You did not state in your question whether you have one from another state. Here is the exact page where it states the steps:


Most of those steps refer to credentialing requirements you have already done in the previous state. If you do NOT have one, you’ll need to apply to a university credentialing program, supply subject matter competency proof and complete a student teaching portion.
