Subject: Re: Making Teaching a Profession

That's interesting, because I too am an engineer (civil/structural). one and a hlf years ago I started what is know here as an after degree program to get my teaching degree. Of course I live in Canada so I'm sure that the certification procedures are somewhat different. I have been told often that my math major/chem minor teaching degree together with the engineering degree will almost guarantee me a job even though the province that I live in has been cutting back on its funding to education in the past few years. That's my story, you might want to check with your local school district to find out what you need to do to qualify. Good luck! Rob
