Teaching in the Classroom

Once you’ve built a solid foundation after completing your testing and training, it’s time to strengthen the skills you’ve acquired by putting them into practice in the classroom! During your first year, you’ll earn full pay and benefits while also receiving guidance from your Indiana Teachers Field Supervisor – a trusted and experienced mentor who will offer advice, support, and encouragement.

Learn what documentation you'll need to start teaching on your Transition to Teaching Permit.

Our Team Is Committed to Helping You Land Your Dream Job

You may apply for jobs with your Letter of Acceptance (LOA), but before accepting employment, you must provide your corporation with an updated Letter of Eligibility (LOE), which is a document to verify your employment.

After you are offered a job, let us know by submitting the “I Got a Job” form in your Intern Portal. Once we verify you are qualified to accept your offered job, we will provide you with a Letter of Eligibility (LOE).


Once you obtain your LOE from Indiana Teachers, you may apply for your Transition to Teaching (T2T) Permit. You will submit your T2T permit through LVIS. You will need to provide all official transcripts, required certificates, your LOE, and, if applicable, a copy of your Indiana CORE assessment test score report. Once all documents are received and processed by the Indiana Department of Education, the application will be routed to your school corporation, charter school campus, or private school campus.
