Have you considered an online masters program in education for getting your graduate education degree? If not, you should give it some serious thought. Doing so can substantially shorten the length of time it takes to get your masters degree, and save you money off the cost of going the traditional university route. In addition, there won’t be any need for you to quit your job so you can attend school – you’ll be attending school right in your bedroom or home office. These advantages are tremendous, and are the reasons people are flocking to online masters programs in education and other fields.
As you no doubt are aware, unless you have a masters degree, your career options in the field of education are going to be quite limited. Odds are great you won’t be able to rise above teacher level; in fact, more and more private schools, and public schools in affluent areas are starting to require a masters degree even for teachers. If you want to move into administration, and become a principal or superintendent in any district you’ll find that it’s impossible if you don’t have a masters degree. It’s a prerequisite; without it you’ll never rise above the level of teacher.
