Renewing your license is simple and can be done online with a few easy steps without having to physically submit any documents.
If you have never created an account, you can register for a new account.
Please note: Once you start the process here, it must be completed online, and your admin will also login to their Administrator account to complete the review after you submit.
Once you navigate to teachnm.org, you will select Member Login:
After you choose Same Level Licensure, you will be brought to the SLL System.
This will bring up the steps to renew your license(s):
Update any information that has changed before moving onto Step 2. If you have a previous district listed in your account, your submission will go to that district's administrator instead of your current administrator who will need to complete the review. Make sure that the OATH section at the bottom of your profile is checked, otherwise you will be unable to proceed:
Close the window on the next screen, and refresh the page to get to Step 2 if it has not turned green.
Check off each license that you wish to renew.
Licenses cannot be renewed before 6 months of expiration. Unfortunately, Level 1 and Alternative Level 1 licenses also cannot be renewed. If you have retired, or not currently teaching at a New Mexico school, you must submit a Continuing License Application that will need to be sent to NMPED.
Preview the payment amount of $95. This should cover the cost of multiple renewals.
Submit payment by entering your information. You will get a receipt of confirmation to the email verified in your account.
This is where you can log in and check where your renewal is in the process. Your license will be sent to the address NMPED has on file, not necessarily the address you have in your TeachNM account, so it would be beneficial to check they have an updated address on file for you.
