Teacher Credential Information

A credential file is a method for responding to job postings by introducing oneself to a prospective employer such as a school principal. A self-managed credential file consists of, at a minimum, an Aquinas College Credential Cover Sheet, student teaching evaluations and signed letters of recommendation that are collected, maintained, administered and sent by you directly to prospective employers.

Self-Managed Credentials Cover Sheet
Note: School districts notice when job applicants follow the application procedures the district has stated in their job posting. Therefore, it is recommended that you only send a credential packet to those districts which have asked that credentials be sent along with your resume and cover letter.
