Newbie with my first post here. I'm 28. I graduated a couple years ago with my degree in English and I recently have given in to my desire to become a teacher. I will be taking a year of prerequisites (2010-2011) and hopefully get into the program for the 2011-2012 year. What I'm worried about is getting done with the program and finding out that they prefer to hire younger teachers. Is there a disadvantage to starting this career in your early 30's? I love honest feedback! Thanks!
