    I’ve heard the same things. Can you start teaching with your credential and then pick up your MEd after you secure a job?

    I taught with a MA + credits in my subject. I was a high school teacher at a charter.

    I’m Canadian and I have the first level of certification available in Ontario, a bachelor of education.  It’s a 1 year program that comes after you get a degree–so I did a four year history program, then 1 year bachelor of education.

    It’s also very hard to get a job in Ontario–I moved overseas instead.  Haven’t regreted it for a minute.

    I have a BS in Education and a BA in Social Sciences. I am certified to teach General Special Ed K-12 and Elem Ed. I am currently a Special Ed teacher in an Elementary school. No Masters and not working on it. However, I have actually NOT been hired for jobs before because I didn’t have my masters. I think it all depends on who is hiring you and what they are looking for.

    Charter schools in LA are GROWING and HIRING! I was pink slipped from LAUSD after my first year (2008-2009) and found a job with a great charter org.


    To answers your question: I went to The University of Hartford because they have an education program where at the end of your 4 years of undergrad you have your credential. My degree says “Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Behavioral Studies”
