Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Under CA law any felony MAY be grounds to deny a teaching certification. Even though it was a non-violent or serious felony, the department of education MAY still deny it and your sole recourse is filing an appeal and asking them for a waiver to allow the certificate since a non-violent felony can be waived by them..
