Hey guys, I am a 23 year old potentially looking to go into the career of teaching. I got my bachelors in Information Technology last May(2017). I am interested in becoming an elementary school teacher and work in an before/afterschool program in my hometown which I absolutely love. I am also a male but I don't know if that would actually help me landing a job (I've heard that it would and won't). I live in NJ and would be looking for a future job there. I have also heard that school districts do not like the alternate route and prefer a degree. So basically, I was wondering if it would better to go for the alternate route or get my masters in the long run.
