VERY doubtful. I have a felony on my record and can't even get a job at BURGER KING!

I only know the law in my state. If the offense was violent or sex-related, absolutely, no. If the offense was more white-collar crime or non-violent, the law is fuzzy. The answer is -probably not - but there is a chance.

It depends on the violation behind the felony and the audience you want to teach. It is alos important to know the venue for knowledge transfer -- primary, seconday, post secondary, vocational, etc. schools.

It would depend on the state and the district that hires you.
i know that to get into the college program you would have to submit a letter explaining your situation and be approved or you'd never get a certification. If you were tenured, you might have a chance, otherwise i would doubt it... but stranger things happen.
