Hello Ruby,

I'm providing you with details that are relevant to your state, but remember, you can replace it with any other state if necessary. To find this information, you can search for "[State] GED Requirements".

Let's talk about the GED requirements in Idaho:

- Residency: You don't need to be an Idaho resident.
- Age: You need to be at least 18 years old.
- Education: You can't be currently enrolled in an accredited high school or have a high school diploma.
- Cost: The cost per subject at the Test Center is $36, or $144 for all subjects.
- Score: You need a minimum score of 145 in each subject.
- Accommodations: If you need disability accommodations, you must apply through the GED test's accommodations page.

If you're interested in becoming a teacher in Idaho, you'll need to get certified. This process is managed by the Idaho State Department of Education.

Here's a quick guide on how to become a teacher in Idaho:

- Education: Like all other states, Idaho requires teachers to have a bachelor's degree.
- Accreditation: Applicants must complete a teacher preparation program that's accredited by both the regional accrediting agency for its state and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
- Certification: After completing a bachelor's degree and an accredited educator preparation program, new teachers are eligible for the Initial Certificate. This certificate can be renewed and is valid for five years.

If you have a bachelor's degree but didn't complete an approved teacher preparation program, you might still be eligible for alternative teacher certification in Idaho.

I know this is a lot to take in, but take your time, don't hesitate to ask questions, and have faith in your future. Best of luck!
