      One of the best places that you can go for information and enroll and become a teacher in a relatively short time is through the ABCTE Program. I do not advocate just rushing through the program, but taking your time to develop those skills and knowledge that you need in teaching a diverse group of elementary students.

      You will also have a great ides of the types of things that elementary education teachers should know.

      It is probably one of the lowest cost programs for elementary education, and even though it is valid for only 9-12 states, it is an excellent resource for Professional Teaching Knowledge including Classroom Management, Instructional Design, Instructional Delivery, Assessment, and Adolescent Development. There is a also a Multiple Subject Exam in the areas that you will likely be teaching.

      Let me know how it works out.
