As a principal, I am always looking for the best way to effectively and efficiently staff our school so that the needs of our students are met. Scheduling courses that our students are required to take and desire becomes a jigsaw puzzle of resource allocation. Having teachers who are content certified and highly qualified in multiple content areas is truly a blessing. It gives me as a principal the opportunity to pull together a master schedule that best meets the needs of all of my students. I was thrilled to learn of the UW Oshkosh's Center for Additional Teaching Licenses! The Add-on Licensure program has allowed my teachers at Oshkosh West High School to gain additional licensure and achieve their own personal goals of increasing their knowledge and skills so that they are well prepared to meet the variety of needs of our learners. I highly recommend the UW Oshkosh Add On Licensure Program.
