Lawyer-turned-SAHM here contemplating a huge career change to teaching. My state requires a BA (which I have) plus graduation from a state-accredited teachers program. I went through the list of accredited programs and the one that is the most flexible (wholly online except the demonstrative teaching aspect of course) and affordable is western governors university. It's an online school. I'd get a masters in teaching. Does anyone know if the "prestige" in where a degree is obtained from matters a lot when job searching? I'm used to law where of course, the name of the law school is the number one factor in finding a job. Is teaching like that too?
