What is a PSW? Is it a social worker? If you have your Bachelor's degree you may not need to go back to school to become a teacher. Some states have an alternative route certification for those who have a degree. Most of these programs you have to find a sponsoring school to hire you and you might have to take a class or two that the program offers at night or on the weekends and then you will be observed teaching so many times. Once that process is over with then you will get your official certification. Each state's process is different though.

Okay, what you need to do then is look at your budget. Your husband has a very valid concern. How are you doing financially while on maternity leave? If you are doing good, then point that out to him. If not, find a way to work part-time and go to school. Also go ahead and see if your husband would be okay with you filling out the financial aid paperwork. This will let you know if you qualify for the Pell Grant and for how much.
