I recently decided I want to go back to school to get my teaching credential. I have been accepted to two programs but there are a few things holding me back.
The first program is at a college that is mainly for working adults. It's one night a week for 12-14 months and will cost around $20,000 which I will need to take out in loans.
The second program is a university which would require me to quit my job and go full time. It would cost about $8,000 and be three quarters, about 9 months. I would still need to take out a loan for the full amount.
My major concern is money. I already have a large amount in student loans for my bachelors and would like to not nearly double it with the first program, but I am scared to quit my job. We need the money and I carry all of our insurance.
My other major concern is that if I quit my job and then I am unable to get a teaching job in this economy. So, basically I'd like any advice from teachers on if it's a wise decions and maybe which course you'd go?
