MHSE Transitional B Certification Program
Program Coordinator, Sherry Deckman
This program is designed for graduate and undergraduate teacher candidates enrolled in any of Lehman College’s secondary teacher certification programs who wish to earn a transitional certification and assume responsibilities as a teacher of record in an NYSED public school prior to obtaining their professional licensure.
Lehman College partners with the employing school districts to ensure support for the new teacher. Transitional B certified teachers continue to take coursework toward a Master’s degree and are mentored in conjunction with the district. District mentoring is provided by certified school personnel during the first year of teaching. College mentoring and advisement are provided by College faculty during the first and second years of teaching.
