    I think the University of Phoenix might, but it could also depend upon the state in which the program is located. You need to make sure that the program you chose is accredited with your state – if it isn’t, you might not be able to obtain your license.

    I would strongly recommend against doing it all online though. It’s okay got some degrees, but not for education. When you do that, you don’t make strong connections with faculty or with schools, and I don’t think you get a true picture of what education really is. That could really work against you when it comes to your practicum/student teaching. There are also a lot of methods that you can really only learn in a face-to-face setting, and you learn so much about teaching from watching good teachers model best practices. If you really want to be the best teacher that you can be so that you can help your students meet standards, you really shouldn’t do an online degree program.

    Best to search around. You can find few useful school finding tools at mission2educate.org

    I agree with lilprof. Education is not the best thing to study online. A lot of what you will be doing is observations and student teaching in order to receive your teaching license. Online schools don’t have strong relationships with local districts so getting your hours will be difficult. Also, you will have trouble getting hired if many principles never heard of your school or if they have negative feelings about it (for-profit schools like u of p are not very respected in the education world).

    There is no easy way to become a teacher, just like there is no easy way to be a good teacher. It takes hard work and dedication but in the end its worth it (I am a HS teacher). Go to a well known school near your home,most schools have night classes for there teacher prep programs. While your in school try to make connections with HS teachers in your area. Well, I hope this helps, good luck.
