Hi there. I'm coming here for help. I am trying to obtain teacher certification in California and I am feeling very overwhelmed and helpless. My background is I have a BAE from ASU, my major was "Selected Studies". What is that you ask --- basically I got half way through my classroom experience and decided I wanted to teach abroad so I never finished it. Selected Studies is basically an education degree w/o classroom experience, it is meant for international education. I also obtained a minor in History. After I graduated I taught ESL in a Korean Public School. I taught for two years and then some thing unexpected happened -- I got homesick. So I came back to the United States. But now I am finding it very hard to obtain certification. I have found programs costing 10,000 USD!!! This has me feeling very depressed and upset as I still owe 30,000 for my BAE. I feel like all my education was for nothing. Surely, there has to be a better way? Which Is why I am coming to you. Please help me.
