In Georgia there are a few options. First you will need to take the GACE. Since you have an MBA, then I would take the Math test and try to get certified as a Math teacher. You can either go to a school that offers a Bachelor's degree in Elementary or Middle/High School Education. Depending on the school, you will either have to complete 1-2 years of the education program. Or, since you already have a Bachelor's and Master's degree, then you can go through a program (in North Georgia it is called RESA). This is where you find a school to hire and sponsor you. During your first year, you will be paid as a provisional teacher which is about $30,000. The program will send someone out to observe you as you teach. It takes about 6 months to a year to complete this and once you finish then you will be certified as a teacher. Cont..

Cont.. However, having said all of this. There were about 80 students who just graduated with their B.S. in Education from the local college I go to. Only 3 have found jobs in Georgia. 10 have found jobs in Tennessee and 2 have accepted jobs in Alaska. What is going to help you is the fact that while most school systems are not hiring, if you get certified in Math, then you are more likely to get a job that way. The thing that is going to hurt you is that, your degree is not in education and you have a Master's degree (they will have to pay you more). Have you considered teaching at a college? You may be able to find a job as an adjunct teacher.
