Question/Topic: Teacher certification records. 
Answer/Pointer: I contacted the Bureau of Educator Certification. I was told that although teacher certification records are public, there is some personal information included in the records that are private. Upon request, they will provide copies of applications and certifications for specific educators. They require that you send a written request to include the person's name and some identifying factor, such as a date of birth or social security number. They also require your signature. Please send the request to: Bureau of Educator Certification 325 W. Gaines St. Tallahassee, FL 32399 Atten: Kathy Hebda After receiving your request, they will determine the number of pages that will need to be copied, and bill you 15 cents/page. If you need to contact their office, the number is: 850-488-6159.
