I wish to become a hs teacher, history/government/social studies. I am not sure how to go about doing that.

Do advise me.

Also, I wouldnt mind teaching in Virginia or DC itself.

A couple questions:

Do you currently hold a certificate from another state? If you do that will make obtaining a MD cert marginally easier, especially if you're in a high need area (Math, Science, Special Ed., Foreign Language). oops, saw you are Social Studies.

If you are a career changer there are pathways to that but there are issues right now financially.

You will also need PRAXIS scores, although some systems will hire you without them but you have pass the tests within a year or so.

Be aware that most MD systems (they go by County here) are in retrenching mode right now and many jurisdictions have had layoffs for next year.
