Ok so I am seriously contemplating going and getting a teaching degree. I am due in October with our second little boy and was thinking that sometime after that of going back to school. I was wondering if I could take online classes or if that is something I would actually have to attend classes for? And where do I start looking as far as grants and stuff?

Most schools make you attend classes for teaching certifications.  You can take some of your basis on line, but when you get into the practical stuff, you have to be present.

As for grants and such, talk to a financial advisor at whatever school you're interested in, and they can help you figure out what you qualify for. :)

You need to take most of your courses at the university. Unless you already have a Bachelor's degree, you will need to attend a 4 year college which also involves student teaching and lots of it. Then you'll have to pass the Praxis exams. It is a lot of work. If you already have a Bachelor's degree, you may be eligible to eliminate some classes. Every state is different. There are deadlines for grants also.

Thank you...That probably means I need to find a cheap babysitter or wait until they're both in school...
