I was just accepted to an online post bachelor's teaching program to get certified in NJ and PA. Passed all Praxis 1 tests, Social Studies and Business Praxis 2. I have NJ sub certificate and went to 30 hour Sub training but have not left my current IT job. Has anyone gone through a career change this late in life? Anyone want to allow me to observe in NJ or PA area (an online class requirement? What are most common mistakes to avoid for a beginning teacher at my age? Id like to teach Social Studies, but could end up in Technology or Business if needed for middle school or high school. Im excited and apprehensive. Any and all advice and experience stories are much appreciated.
