In Minnesota, all professional educators who are licensed by the state are certified via the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLEs). These tests cover a range of subjects, from basic skills and pedagogy tests for first-time licensees, to content exams for those seeking additional licensure in a specific grade, subject or career area such as school administration or counseling.
