I would love to go back to school and get a degree in early childhood education. I would love to be with children all day. I have two small kids of my own and I have always said I want to be a teacher and be with kids. I really dont know how to get started or what to do or how hard it is. If any moms out there can help me out with any information or pros and cons that would be wonderful. ThanksAnswer Question

i have my b.s. in e.c.e.d. depends on which college how hard it is.... i went to Kent state university. it has a competitive program that is cut to 50 students per yr .... i made the cut surprisingly... i have taught second grade for 3 years and been a title one tutor for 3 years... i really do enjoy it, i found managing a classroom of 30 + kids was NOT FOR ME... i can do it but it is stressful!! look into title one teaching. it is a job that a lot of school hire people into because it is simpler than a classroom. i am sticking with it though.. the eced degree is good in that you are hqt (highly qualified teacher) by the new standards of no child left behind but a big part of that is you can only teach prek-3rd grade... elementary degrees are 1-6.... so it limits the jobs you can apply for but you are more valuable if you want to teach prek-3... anyways it is a good job, summers off with the kids!!
