Teacher Education Programs

LIU Hudson can help you to become a teacher, or enhance your existing skills and credentials. At this time, when K-12 education is in the midst of tremendous change, quality teacher training based on proven, clinically rich models is of greater value than ever. Whether you come to us directly from an undergraduate experience in teacher education or another field, or are already credentialed and seeking additional certifications (including advancement into educational leadership), we have the seasoned faculty and staff to help you meet your objectives.

LIU Hudson teachers and educational leaders have a formidable history of achievement.  They teach in classrooms across the county, the region and the nation.  They are the assistant principals and principals who manage our schools and the assistant superintendents and superintendents who set and implement district-wide policies.  Despite radical changes in New York State certification requirements for teachers and educational leaders beginning in 2014-2015, our graduates continue to set impressive standards of success as teachers and leaders. 

New content specialty tests were designed and implemented in AY 2015-2016.  As a result of the resulting disruptions, New York State continues to offer “safety nets” for some tests and offers new safety nets for others. The safety net for the edTPA (teacher performance assessment) will continue until June 30, 2017. The ALST (Academic Literacy Skills Test) that had been both required and safety netted, was eliminated as a certification requirement effective March 14, 2017.  Safety nets for fourteen content specialty tests, ranging from social studies to Spanish to English to Speakers of Other Languages, are projected to continue until June 30, 2019. 

During the period September 2015 through May 2016, 31 LIU Hudson students demonstrated their intention to become teachers in NYS by taking varying combinations of 17 different examinations. When fewer than 10 students took a given examination, no passing rate was published by the test administrators. The Educating All Students (EAS) test required of all those seeking initial teacher certification has been 100% for the period Sept., 2013 through Sept., 2016.

Educational Leadership (EDL) students seeking certification as School Building Leaders (SBL) took the two part New York State Education Department required SBL examination. The pass rate for Part 1 and Part 2 of the SBL was 92.3%.  The pass rate on Part 1 and Part 2 of the School District Leader Examination, the next level of certification, was 100%.
