In Response To: question about education to teach? (adam)

I would like to get the CELTA certification to teach abroad. I want to eventually get my bachlors degree in teaching (Even though I dont't have any money at the moment). What is the best system to do this? Should I get the celta and teach abroad to save up enough money for college? or should i do it the opposite way: go to college first then get the celta and teach?

I know i can get help with financial aid right now if I went to community college and completed the general education classes. However, I don't know if they will grant me financial aid in the future if I have a large sum of money in my bank account (From teaching abroad).

Am I making sense?

Unfortunately, you won't have anywhere near a large of sum of money in your bank account from teaching because it will be difficult for you to find a job unless you have a BA. Keep in mind even if employers don't state a degree is needed, a minimum of a BA may be required for legal employment.

So in answer to your question, get the degree first and then the CELTA before heading abroad.
