The American Board can help you change careers and become a teacher in Oklahoma. In April 2009, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry signed alternative teacher certification legislation approving the American Board as a route to full teacher licensure. The Oklahoma State Department of Education fully recognizes the American Board certification for all school districts in the state.
