  • I live in Pa. You seem to realize things may change from state to state. Be sure anything you start in Ca, you can finish in Az. Two years at community college can get you an early childhood associate degree and you can teach preschool or teach at a daycare. Four years of college earns you a degree in education. You need to conside what grades you want to teach - elementary or secondary. There is further education but that is what is required basically.

  • You can take certain classes at a comm. college that will transfer. Certain level math, English, and sciences. I would get a counselling appt. at the college you want to go to and see what credits they accept. In general the higher courses at comm. college do transfer, but remedial ones that are prerequisites for higher comm. college courses do not

  • My sister is a teacher in Tucson, AZ. She graduated with an early childhood degree from Texas A&M. Then she had to take a test to be able to teach in AZ. You basically need a degree.
