I have one semester left of my grad program in journalism, and I don't feel it's worth it to finish it. I would rather spend the time getting certified to teach high school Spanish or social studies. I've looked into a lot of the alternative teacher certification programs and most of the people haven't had positive things to say about them. They seem like they're very corporate-driven and take a really authoritarian approach to behavior management. But I really don't have the time to go back to get another master's and I'd like to start teaching as soon as possible. I'm willing to move to another state that has less stringent requirements. Does anyone have experience with these programs?
