The Education Department at Trinity hopes that we have equipped you well for excellent service and also encouraged you to keep growing in the profession. To that end we hope you are taking additional coursework that leads to a graduate degree or coursework leading to endorsements which you can add to your license. The licensure officer at Trinity can add endorsements to a license. To that end, we offer the following assistance. .
All information for adding endorsements can be found on the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) web site (www.isbe.net). Since navigating the ISBE web site can be a challenge we have developed a sheet of direct links which will help you find what you need. We would encourage you to navigate and become familiar with the Educator License Page which has everything you might need on it regarding your teaching license, license renewal, and adding endorsements (http://www.isbe.net/licensure/default.htm). The Current or Prospective Educators section (about half way down the page) will lead you to a page of information and many resources. The resource column has specific information about endorsements.
Once you have completed what you believe are the requirements, you can contact Trinity’s Licensure Officer, Dr. Meyer, and she will send you a form to complete. You will need to provide her with an official set of transcripts which show any coursework taken since you have completed your program at Trinity.
We hope this information is helpful and that you have continued success in all of your endeavors.
