Going back to school to do my 12 ECE Units (but in all likelihood will probably take much more) to get my Master Teaching Certificate. Since I already have a BA degree, and a my single subject teaching credential in English, all I have to do is take 12 ECE units and do one semester of field experience (which I am assuming is the pre-school version of student teaching). I have been told the following things: +You're going to starve to death and always be poor +You're only going to make minimum wage +You'll never have benefits +You're n better than a daycare babysitter. Yet on the other end of the spectrum, I've been told some pre-schools are connected to the school district and thus I'd make the same salary as a teacher in that school, and that if you work for a Montessori school you make significantly more money. How will my chances be different (if at all) with a BA and 1 education degree already at my disposal? I don't want to get into why I don't want to do Secondary anymore, I just don't, btw.
