I signed up for an LD endorsement to help me get a teaching job. I have 16 credits toward this endorsement, which I thought was 30 credits. I discovered to my shock today that it's 39 for the endorsement and 44 for a master's. At my current job I'd make more $ with a master's but not an endorsement. My advisor also told me today that I DO need to do 6 credits of student teaching, even though I'm currently teaching. I asked her how I can do this, and she said possibly at lunch/prep times. I am so torn. I only have two years to finish this which means 28 credits in 2 years while working full time and I have a little girl at home. I am also upset because I didn't realize a reading master's is only 34 credits which is 5 credits less than just the endorsement which won't lead to more $. Do I just stop this process and waste the money I've already spent? I am NOT a happy camper right now!
