Teaching Certificate Program..

Does anyone have any advice or recommendations on area schools that offer programs for teaching certificates? I've had my B.A. for about 7 yrs now and am contemplating a change of career. (the thought of that scares the heck out of me)

Just wondering if any of you ladies are teachers, are in a program like that, or know someone who has done that. Any rants or raves would be appreciated.

I'm looking around the Milwaukee/Kenosha area.

Re: Teaching Certificate Program..

  • I think Carthage has an adult program that runs at night.
  • Luv - I'll  have to look at that. I haven't even mentioned that this is in my head to DH yet. Think I'll try to talk myself out of it on my own. Just that everytime I start thinking about what to be when I grow up, this pops into my head.

  • Cardinal Stritch has a nice program for graduate students that work.  The classes are at night and they work pretty well with any previous credits you might have to transfer.  They are also highly recognized as a good "school" for education.  The only downside is they are quite expensive.
  • Oh, UW-Milwaukee is also another school that offers a "Teaching Certificate" for individuals with a Bachelor's Degree.  I haven't taken any classes there...only because I cannot stand how big the school is and not having adequate parking drives me nuts.
  • Tell me about it!  I want to go back to school AGAIN!  What for this time?  Medical Assistant.  I should just friggin go back for nursing and get it over with.  lol.

  • Concordia and Marquette both have teaching cert programs for people that have bachelor degrees. They even allow you to work on cert and get masters at same time. Both great programs.?

    But I'm confused. Are you looking for Teaching Cert or Medical Asst? ?

  • wait, nevermind. I was looking at wrong post. Duh.

    ?

    So yeah, look into Concordia and Marquette. ?

  • One of my co-workers went through Alverno.
  • I went to Concordia and thought it was a great program. I went to class 1 night/week for 18 months and then did 1 semester of student teaching.  Their website is www.cuw.edu.  Look under Graduate Teaching Certificate.  The program also puts you within 9 credits of a masters.
