Hey guys! This might be a little off topic but I was wondering if anyone knows what the job outlook and requirements for becoming a speech language teacher are, particularly in NJ. Though I am teaching now I am interested in going back to school for my masters in this area. I would love to help students and work with smaller groups of children. However, I never knew that there was such a surplus of teachers in NJ when I was in college and had a tough time finding a teaching job. (duh--I should have just checked these boards and listened to all the gripes about other teachers struggling to find work here in the northeast) I think becoming a speech language pathologist would increase my odds of finding a job and would be something I would love but honestly I really have no idea. I don't want to put up all the $$ and time if I'm going to end up unemployed.
