Hi everyone, I hope I am posting this in the right section. I am thinking of switching careers and applying for the teacher credential program (CA). I am currently a therapist with a BA in psychology and MA in counseling psychology. From my understanding, a teacher makes more money if she has a master's degree. My question is: Does the Master's degree have to be in education? Would my master's in counseling earn me more as an elementary school teacher? Thanks in advance! So happy I found this forum!
