Short Answer Hypothetical
I graduated from college last May and entered a credentialing program at a CSU or UC school. I want to teach upper elementary. Sometime in October, a professor assigned some reading by Kozol. On a whim and out of the blue, I read the assigned reading, even though this is rarely necessary, and it changed my life. Now I want to teach high need urban ed, specifically and exclusively.
Given this new direction and purpose to my career, in what way or ways does my path through my credentialing program change?
I will graduate from college this upcoming May. I know right now that I want to be a teacher, and I know right now that I want to teach in a high-need urban school.
How does this knowledge affect which credentialing program I enter?
