What's CDA??? And it also depends on the laws in the state you live in. In MA we need a BS or BA, then you get certified via a huge state exam. Then you have to get your masters with in 5 years to keep your cert.

You can teach at a daycare and some preschools, but to teach at a Pre-K through 12th grade position then you need a 4 year degree in Education (Elementary or Secondary with an emphasis in a subject), and pass your state's test.

SAHMinIL2, Not all states require a 4 year degree in Education but ALL states do require a minimum of a 4 year degree. Also, depending on the subject and the need, it can be very hard to get a teaching job without the education degree, so it is best to go ahead and go the traditional route, especially if you have little or no college education.

As SAH said, you could possibly get a teaching job in a private school. Even many private schools won't hire one without the state certificate, despite being allowed to. If you want to teach in a public/private school classroom over staying in the field of daycare, I'd work on getting a 4 year degree. I must also add, if you live in IL, teaching jobs are pretty much IMPOSSIBLE to come by today.
