Student & Graduate Reviews (1)
It was not until I complete my associate degree in a community college that I decided to become a teacher. Upon attempting to transfer my credit in to U of M's education department I was told very few credits would transfer do to the technical nature of the credits. They encourage me to transfer in to a technical program verses an education program and to take all education electives. The goal was to eventually transfer to the education department after receiving a 4 year degree. This ended up being a long path to teaching and a very expensive one. I love the well rounded education and think that it has made me a better teacher of science and technology but I would do it differently if I could start over. Now that I am in UNCC education program I have learned that lateral entry teacher can get paid for their first year while student teacher work the year for free. There are greater responsibilities but it is very rewarding.
