    Masters or Not?

    I have heard both versions of the responses given. As someone who is in your same situation, this is what I am doing right now.
    I am enrolled in a Masters of Education in Teaching program, which entails getting teacher certification at the same time with the masters degree. I am taking classes for the certification portion at this time, and so far have taken only one class toward fulfilling the masters portion.

    I figure once I get my certification, I can either quit the masters portion or continue on. Because of the way the program is setup here, by the time I'm through (if there's any more energy left of me!) I will have a certification (of course, I have to pass the exam), a masters degree plus fulfill the course requirement for an endorsement (after meeting the one year teaching criteria).

    Obviously every state is different, but I hope this will give you some idea. Good luck!
