I'm a male with an associate's in Software Development, and a bachelor's in Software Engineering, so I took a ton of math courses in college. I want to get certified to be a math teacher, and I'm hoping that my certification will allow me to teach in any of the three northern New England states (NH, VT, ME) as I'm not quite sure where I'll end up! My goal is to be capable of teaching/assistant teaching by next fall.
There's a lot of information online, but I'm looking for advice from people who've already done this, ie: "I did it online, and I wish I hadn't because..." I could figure out how to find/take a course (be it local or online) but I'd like to know what people with experience know about the certification process, and also about the likelihood of finding a certification that's good in NH, VT and ME...
