As a teacher, you’ve committed yourself to help others learn more about the subject matter that’s most important to them. Whether you’re working with early childhood, K-12, or any other student population, the world we live in today paints a much different picture than what societal standards even as recently as ten years ago. Teachers have extremely high expectations placed on their shoulders, and sometimes they make mistakes which lead to disciplinary action. At the end of the day, we are all human.

But what do you do if your teaching license has been or is about to be revoked? Is there anything you can do to save your career? At Unlock Legal, we’ve made a name for ourselves doing exactly that – Reinstating professional licenses for people who have just gotten a bad break. The accidental criminals, we call them.

If this sounds like you, here’s what you need to know:

Don’t Delay

If you’ve lost your teaching license, you need to act fast. As with any forfeiture of professional license, the earlier you act, the higher the likelihood your case has the outcome you desire it to have. The key to being reinstated is to turn to a professional as soon as possible so that you do not miss key deadlines. Delays can really hurt your chances, as saving your license relies heavily on the unique operating procedures of your profession’s governing bodies.

Gather Your Character References

Character references play an increasingly important role during the license reinstatement process. Regardless of what type of misconduct led to it being revoked in the first place, one of the toughest jobs during your appeal is to convince regulators that you are not the person they were led to believe you are. That means any positive letters and acknowledgments of your character from both your home and professional life should be compiled into a docket that we can then present to the authoritative body.  Do you have a principal or former administrators that can vouch for you?  Do other teachers or parents of former students value your character?  This could be a critical part of your defense.
