Teacher License Renewal

Greetings, fellow MACTE Colleagues!

Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota is pleased to serve MACTE as the teacher re-licensure resource. We have a Teacher Licensure Leadership Team that is comprised of individuals that lead our teacher preparation programs in the areas of K-12 mainstream classroom teaching, special education, literacy, and ESL. We will be incorporating the process of evaluating teacher re-licensure applications into our monthly meetings.

Currently, the required areas of professional development for re-licensure are as follows:

  • Positive Behavioral Intervention Strategies
  • Key Warning Signs for Early-Onset Mental Illnesses in Children and Adolescents
  • Reading Preparation
  • Reflective Statement of Professional Accomplishment and Assessment of Professional Growth (**not required for anyone who hasn’t been teaching in the K-12 classroom**)
  • ESL
  • Cultural Competency
  • Suicide Prevention and Training


Please access the attached documents to assist you in determining your renewal needs and to guide your evidence in meeting the requirements. When you are ready to submit your completed application, please send an email to Betty Kube, Administrative Assistant to the School of Education, at bkube@smumn.edu and include all documents electronically in one communication.  Your application will then be considered at the next monthly meeting, unless an expedited need is established. If you have any questions while compiling your application, you may also forward those to Ms. Kube.

We look forward to assisting you with your re-licensure needs.
Dr. Rebecca I. Hopkins
Dean of Education
