I recently graduated with a B.S. in Applied physics, and I currently have two possible career routes that could satisfy me: finding a career in the applied sciences, or becoming a high school and/or community college physics and math teacher. This thread pertains to the latter option. I am looking at returning to my college to get a master of arts in education with a teaching credential. However, I have heard that it is better to get a masters of science education, which will apparently make me a more desirable candidate in general. In regards to teaching at the community college level I was told that the MA in education wouldn't work at all, and that I would need the MSE. In general I would want to pursue the path that made me into a better physics teacher in general, and also looked the best to hiring high schools and cc's. I have researched this some myself, but I would appreciate any advice from people knowledgeable in the area to help my search. Thanks for any and all help.
