Elementary School Teacher

Most of this is caused by limited budgets in the school districts, limited funds to provide more schools, lack of teachers, school supplies, and limited access to social programs. Not only are we facing increasing numbers of kids in schools, but also, a good majority of them also lack meals to provide body and mind proper growth and potential.
College: CSU Monterey Bay is the college I will be attending, this is because of the teacher's program that is a combine BA-MA in one, with credentials. The school also offers an internship program geared at teaching in the public school to provide hands on experience.

I enjoy tutoring so much, that I decided to work on becoming a teacher. While I am working on the education process: i.e. degree and credentials, I was wondering If I should also look to teaching abroad for job experience? #study-abroad...
