I am going back to school for elementary education. I'm hoping I can knock it out in three years. I'll be 26 this year so it's not like I'm getting any younger. I currently run a daycare out of my home but I know realistically if I return to school I would have to close my business. I really do not want to do this. I have been leaning more toward online colleges so I can do everything from home while I'm working.
Do any of you have online degrees? If so, do you feel it has inhibited you in any way?
Do you think when I go for a job interview they will frown upon that or will they pay more attention to my teaching certification exams?
Just out of curiosity, how long did it take you to get your first teaching job after you graduated?
Thanks ladies for your help!

I maybe wrong but I don't think that you can get your teaching degree with certification online entirely. You maybe able to take the classes but you still have to do student teaching.Western Governor's University does this and I have met a lot of teachers who use to be parapro's do this. I would look into your state's requirements. It would be a shame to do all that work and not be able to teach because you won't be certified.
