I am a bank vice president going back to school to get my
Masters in Education (initial licensure - elementary).
I've found a program through Grand Canyon University that
is completely online with the obvious exception of the
student teaching portion. I'm worried about getting
licensed in TN with my degree being from a school out-of-

be fine but I'm wondering if anyone else has any prior
experiences. Thanks!!

with commuting (here in So Cal) and many of the other nasty
things that go on in corporate America. I went back to
school, spent approx 18K on my teaching credential in
special ed. I was told ...See More

Please don't listen to the naysayers on here! Some
experienced teachers get burnt out and "caution" anyone from
entering the profession. I changed careers mid-life and
spent tons of money obtaining a master's from a very highly
ranked education program. I have a great job teaching 6th
grade social studie...See More

I think everyone is right. There are some awful schools (and
maybe even the majority of them are awful) and you'll be sorry
you spent the time, money, and left a good job for the worse job
you can ever have. There are some really great schools, but it's
hard to get jobs in them because there is little teacher...See More
