P.’s Answer

Being that you are in California, I would suggest researching colleges in your area. However, you may also consider studying out of city or out of state, in which case you should look into the colleges in those places. When choosing a college, consider what's important to you--location, tuition costs, resources, campus life, job placement, etc. You should take the time to schedule campus tours, go to open houses and speak to current students and professors. College is a huge choice so don't rush and take your time when choosing. Good luck!

P. recommends the following next steps:

Research colleges in your area
Schedule campus tours
Shadow a current college student
Attend open houses and speak with faculty

Marcene’s Answer

I am an advocate of Community Colleges; this allows one to obtain basics in a smaller environment. Colleges are increasingly partnering with four year institutions. This means there are no lost credits and provides a clear path to one’s major. One of the best schools for education in the Dallas, TX area is North Texas in Denton; they have a sister school in Dallas as well.

Marcene recommends the following next steps:

Check out Dallas College (formally Dallas Community College District) or other two year institutions in one’s area. I believe this is an underutilized resource which can help students to determine their career path.

Robert’s Answer

Hello Odalis, I think it also depends on what you are teaching and at what level. So for example, if you wanted to teach on a college level then you should look at the area you want to teach in and go to a school that has a good program in that area. For example, if you wanted to teach Computer Science on a college-level them MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, etc. are great schools for that. If in English then Harvard, Yale, etc. would be a good choice. By no means are the schools that I mention the only ones that are good. There are so many good schools out there. You also have to find the one right for you. Location, student body, how they teach, etc. are all things you should consider. Good luck with your endeavor and remember to have fun along the way.

If Texas is on your radar, our big college for education is Sam Houston State University in Huntsville. It's very hilly and picturesque out there.

Dear Odalis,

I need to first give you a lot of credit for reaching out to professionals via
LinkedIn. While I’m not an educator (yet) I’m very passionate about equality for all people to pursue their dreams.

Before I can answer your question, may I ask two questions? First, what grade level do you want to teach? (Elementary, Middle School, High School, or Special Education ?). Secondly, if you were to teach at either a middle school or high school, what subjects would you want to teach? There are so many awesome universities where I live (Pennsylvania) and I could say (off the top of my head) Villanova, Kutztown, Temple (my Alma Mater and excellent school to get hands on experience at any grade level). If you would like to provide me with more information, I will happily research the best ranking schools, admission requirements, and tuition. I applied for financial aid both at Temple University and now with graduate school. I don’t think of the money owed as “debt.” This
is an investment into your future. You sound extremely bright, and focused on your next journey in life. Change can be scary, but that is the only constant thing in life. And usually, if something bad happens along the way, there is some good within the circumstances such as lessons learned, and other factors. Trust me, I’ve been through a lot!

Michelle recommends the following next steps:

Please select the grade level you’d like to teach.
Please select the subject you’d like to teach if you’re planning to go beyond Elementary School.
I will compile the best Universities for you!
