High-need fields can be found at the Teacher Shortage Area Nationwide Listing. The high-need field must be designated as such for the state in which you are teaching at the time you begin teaching. This means the TEACH-eligible program you choose now might no longer be eligible by the time you begin your teaching obligation.
Current high-need fields are:
- Bilingual education and English language acquisition.
- Foreign language.
- Special education.
- Other fields as designated by the federal government, the state government or a local educational agency.
