My advice is to get out of the ed program and get a degree in math. Take as many diverse math courses as you can inorder to get a feel for the whole field,. Also, take physics, statics and dynamics. Take a good child psychology course (no ed psychology). After you graduate, go teach at some private school for a year or two. The Alabama School for Mathematics and Science, for example, offers well paid internships for knowledgable uncertified teachers. Then go get certified.
