I have my BA with a concentration in Accounting. However, I know I made the wrong decision (before declaring a major in college I wavered between accounting and education). I have coached youth cheerleading for 6 yrs and have worked at jobs involving small children. What is it going to take now to become a teacher in Pennsylvania? Do I have to start over or does it count for anything that I have a college degree
I’m older than you, but was in the same boat a few years ago…same degree-same concentration–I even coached cheerleading :o)
Anyway, I went back to school on-line to get my post-bacc degree at www.wgu.edu. It is an accredited totally on-line university (I think one of the very few!), and I was able to get my elementary teaching degree with credit for my BS degree, so I didn’t have to retake a lot of non-related courses. I am now licensed to teach in Colorado and when I moved to Vermont–I had no problem with getting my license here. I am teaching here in Vermont. Their program allowed me to get my degree while I was still working and on my own schedule. It is worth checking out–good luck to you!
