There are too many people out there with credentials. Schools can only have a small percentage of teachers without proper credentials and those tend to be limited to hard to fill areas. I think UNCC has a "lateral entry" teacher education program that takes about a year, but I would try to add another area of certification besides art as there aren't many art positions that become available.
I agree, that's why I asked him about the school. I suspect that she is going to school in Philly or NYC, as there are clusters of art schools in both cities. There's also a school in Baltimore. My alma mater has courses that could give her a very viable alternative, depending on her major. It's hard to advise with so little information.

I have a BFA & did not teach, but became a broadcast tech. That's a no-go with the change to digital, so I intend to take whatever & look into a Masters program for history, to teach in the community colleges.

It all boils down to getting a plan & having alternatives, given the economy.

Default Thank you everyone for your responses

Thank you everyone for your response! My GF goes to ECU and will graduate in May and she is moving to Charlotte, so I wanted to help her find a job in teaching. Thanks again everyone!
