I live in Connecticut.. and would love to take advantage of my bilingual abilities and teach in schools, but I don't know what kind of degree I would need. I've tried to find out on the internet but sometimes I find that I need an Associates Degree, other that just a Teacher's Certification would be enough.. but no specifics about it.
Does anybody have any information about it? I don't want to be a Teacher. I just want to teach Spanish. Is it possible to take a course or something in Spanish to teach it?
Kind of lost right now.

What do you mean you don't want to be a teacher, you just want to teach Spanish? Taking a job teaching makes you a teacher. In order to get a teaching certificate you need to have a bachelor's degree. In many states you can become certified to teach even if your degree isn't education (I have no clue about Connecticut) but you need to have a four year degree. You also need a degree to teach at a community college.
You might be able to get a job at a community center teaching informal Spanish classes or something. I'm sure you could volunteer at schools helping the Spanish teachers, but if you want a job you need the degree to get the certificate.
