Want to find out more about your child's teachers?
Tennessee maintains a searchable database of teacher licensing which includes information about whether a license is active or inactive, whether an educator has had any revocations, suspensions, or disciplinary actions, the date the license was issued, and the expiration date. Also listed is whether the teacher is considered "Highly Qualified" and if so, what subjects the teacher is highly qualified in.
This information and more can be found here:
Note: From what we have been able to determine, this listing includes EVERY person who has ever had a license in the state, NOT just those who have faced disciplinary action.
To search the database, searchers may input the educators last name. A first name or social security number can also be included, but is not necessary to return a listing of results.
