I just received notice I did not meet the standard for one of the strands of my dossier. Will I be able to fix and resubmit it before the next window in July? My license expires in June or July so I am very concerned about this!

The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) has made available a powerful set of resources for NM teachers and administrators at  We encourage you to utilize this website when you have questions about teaching-related issues in order to most quickly find your answers and accomplish your goals!

The section of the TeachNM website on the Professional Development Dossier (PDD) for teachers is accessed by clicking “Experienced Teachers” at the top and then “Professional Development Dossier” -

The section of the TeachNM website on the 3-Tiered Licensure System may also be helpful.  It is accessed by clicking "Experienced Teachers" at the top and then "3-Tiered Licensure System" -


An educator must hold a valid, current license to submit a dossier.  If you believe that you have not taught on this license the entire time you have held it, you may check with the NMPED Licensure Help Desk to determine what options might be open to you:
