    Master's needed?

    Hello Ann;
    I see that no one has replied to your cry for help, so I thought I might offer some! Look into several options: Master's on-line, post-bac program compression through many College of Ed.s in universities, endorsements, etc. All of these will broaden your base of understanding while costing you less money and/or time than the "traditional" master's program. I have found through my own experience that I was glad to have waited to get my Master's until now (10 years' teaching/ prof. devel. plus 4 years' supervising new teachers) because I understand so much better than I think I would have had I taken classes as a new teacher. My levels of understanding, for myself, are so much different now than 10 years ago. However, others have said it was the best thing they ever did right after they finished their bac degree. It is very personal. But you would do well to get some internship time and coursework before going into the classroom, trial by fire can be painful for all involved.
