I am retired
Can I still be a certified educator. I'm not as good as I should be but I but I am still enthustiastic about learning Spanish and I want to host an event and continue to attend events.
Yes, all you have to do is take Duolingo's certified educator's test.
More importantly, apply to be in the Educator Network! We have a Slack community where we bounce ideas off of each other and learn new tricks for our toolbags. And we really appreciate people who are enthusiastic! I feel so energized when I am collaborating with people from around the world.
Hope to see you there!
