Tennessee Teacher Careers, Certification and Salaries

The state is divided into three regions, each with a major city and each with its own cultural identity. Memphis is the center of West Tennessee, Nashville is the heart of Middle Tennessee, and Knoxville is the major city in the east. The state has developed a diverse economy in recent years but continues to struggle with significant pockets of Old South poverty, in the urban centers and in the mountainous eastern region. The Tennessee Department of Education is working towards a modernized curriculum by emphasizing specific teacher training and classroom options in fields like computer science and scientific research. The state university system has become one of the most proactive of the southern public universities in online education.
