Hi, everyone. I just recently graduated with my MA in Humanities. My dream is to get a PhD and teach at the college level, but for now, I want to gain some teaching experience at the high school level. I would love to be an English teacher. I applied via alternate route. I took the Praxis, 24-hour pre-certification course, and the hygiene test. I applied for the CE a few weeks ago and am currently waiting to hear back. I feel like I am not a competitive applicant at all. The only teaching experience I have is 5 years at a Sunday school. So, I was thinking of getting an MAT so I could possibly gain some student teaching experience. Or should I get an English Education MA that leads to standard certification? Or should I just dive into the first module of the 200-hour program? I am so lost. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
