Whether early childhood education is your forte or you prefer teaching a much older crowd, a degree in education is never one to second guess because it's a field full of excitement and innovation. There's something extremely rewarding when you see students you taught return years later with college degrees, family photos, and stories of their many successes. Being the physical education teacher or the calculus teacher or any of the other teachers they learn from allows you to play a part in their lives they'll never forget, and that alone is worth the four years it'll take earning a bachelor's degree in education online.

A bachelor's degree is the minimum level of education needed to earn a teacher's license, which is necessary to teach at public schools; requirements vary by state and there are several states that require students to pass the Praxis. (Most private school teachers don't need to have a license though it never hurts to have extra credentials.)

The Praxis Series tests measure future teachers' knowledge and skills and are therefore used for licensing and certification. They include Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core), Praxis I Pre-Professional Skills Tests (PPST), and Praxis II Subject Assessments.

The particular tests you have to take are dependent upon your certification area. The Core tests were designed to measure an individual's reading, writing, and math academic skills and content knowledge. The PPST are often used to qualify candidates for entry into a teacher education program and tests the basic skills in the same three subjects. Lastly, the Praxis II Subject Assessments measure subject-specific content knowledge along with general and subject-specific teaching skills that you will need once your teaching career begins.

But before you need to worry about Praxis practice tests and study guides, you should be trying to figure out which grades you want to teach since that goes hand-in-hand with the major you need to pick.

Early Childhood Education--Majoring in early childhood education is for students who plan on teaching pre-K to third grade. It's no secret that teachers in charge of developing such young minds must have a lot of patience and be very creative and energetic.

Elementary Education--Individuals interested in teaching kindergarten through eighth grade should major in elementary education. This is also a better major to consider if you want to specialize in one specific subject instead of learning a plethora of skills.

Secondary Education--Secondary education majors--sixth through twelfth grade--can also choose a particular field of concentration such as literature, American history, or physics.

Postsecondary Education--Only students who want to teach at the college level must earn a graduate degree; a master's can typically be earned in an additional two years.

Special Education--Many states offer general special education licenses that allow teachers to work with students across a variety of disability categories all the way up to the age of 21 depending on the severity of the disability.
