MD Teacher Certification

All teachers, specialists, and administrators employed by Somerset County Public schools must hold a valid Maryland Educator Certificate. Certificates are issued by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) with either a January or July validity date. No permanent certificates are issued.

While the Human Resources Department is here to assist current educators in processing paperwork and forwarding required proof of coursework to MSDE in order for you to receive a valid Maryland Educator Certificate, it is the responsibility of the educator to ensure compliance with certification requirements. To obtain more information regarding Maryland certification, please refer to the resources found on this page, or visit the MSDE Certification website.

Additionally, all educators have access to view their Maryland Educator Certificate via the MSDE educator portal.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your certification, please contact the, Edie Smith, at 410-621-6240.
