Wisconsin has three license stages for all professional education areas that require the completion of a state approved program: initial educator license, professional educator license and master educator license.
The third license stage, master educator, is a voluntary license. A candidate who selects the master educator option must demonstrate an advanced level of proficiency on challenging and rigorous portfolio entries built on the framework of the Wisconsin Teaching, Pupil Services and Administrative Standards. Mastery is demonstrated through portfolio evidence and a video of exemplary practice related to one of the approved program licenses. It is important to understand that the expertise that is demonstrated in the portfolio requires years of practice to obtain; and the portfolio development, itself, requires significant time and resource commitment. The master license is a 10-year renewable license.For more information visit Wisconsin DPI website.
