Maria Montessori Academy employs individuals holding an LEA-specific educator license, license areas, and/or endorsements. Additional information on educator licensing can be found on the USBE CACTUS website.

The following designations or levels apply to educator licenses, license areas (i.e. elementary, secondary, special education), and content endorsements (i.e. mathematics, music, Spanish, social studies):

  • Professional: The educator has completed an educator preparation program that includes content and pedagogical knowledge. This program may have been completed at a university or in an alternate pathway that was supported by school districts/charter schools and the Utah State Board of Education.
  • Associate: The educator is currently completing an educator preparation program, but has not yet completed all requirements for a Professional Educator License, license area, or endorsement. The educator is enrolled in a university-based or Local Education Agency (LEA)-based program. When the educator completes the program, they will have a professional level license.
  • LEA-Specific: The educator has not completed an educator preparation program and is not currently enrolled in one.
