I am thinking of going back to school to be a teacher. I cant find what the degree that teachers need is and I want to see what classes I need to do that. Does anyone know?

It depends what you want to be certified in, I have a Bachelor of Sciene in Elementary and Early Childhood Education.  I have Masters Degee in Special Education.

I'm in a community college and the 2 year program they offer is Associate of Arts in Teaching or A.A.T

I'm not sure if it works this way in every state, but here (as far as I know), you get a teacher's certification (outside of college) and major in a subject at school that you feel may be a focus of yours. There is no specific "education" major.

I don't see how you couldn't find it? You need a BS in education....that's usually the general degree and you can get more sepcific, like early childhood, special education, etc.

Just check out some of your local colleges and check to see if they have an education department.

Really?!?!? Here you need a BA in education unlesss you want to work in a private school, some of them don't require a BA but most of them do.

Then you would do a General Education K-4 or K-6. Or it may be called Early Childhood. You have to have a bacherlor's degree to get certification. B.S. or B.A. Either of those two or fine.
