Master of Arts in Teaching

Get hands-on teaching experience and a paycheck at the same time. No, it isn't too good to be true.

During year two, get full-time classroom experience while working on your Master of Arts in Teaching. You'll even be at the front of the line for a LAN teaching position. That means potentially earning a higher teacher's salary.
