Hi, I've been a high school teacher for 13 years. My wife is a tutor (in fact, for AtoZ) and she also wants to break into teaching as an elementary school teacher. What is the most inexpensive program in California? She has a Bachelor's in Psychology and Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy. Obviously, she used to be a counselor but now wants a career change. So two questions: 1. (once again) What is the least expensive way toward a teaching credential in California? 2. What, if any, value do the degrees that she currently holds have toward a credential? I am hoping an angel out there can help us with an answer. She really wants to be a teacher. But money's tight with the tuition she's paying for her Master's in Counseling. We don't anticipate any financial aid outside of a loan.
