The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) has made available a powerful set of resources for NM teachers and administrators at http://teachnm.org. 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” - http://teachnm.org/programs/professional-development-dossier/pdd-for-teachers.html
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" - http://teachnm.org/programs/3-tiered-licensure-system.html
Educators who submit and pass their dossier before the 15th of October should have their license issued by July 1st.
Pay is between the district and the educator. Please check with your HR to see how this is being handled in your district.
