      Hi Ian,
      Georgia (Atlanta area) is definitely still hiring art teachers. In fact, it is projected that there will be a shortage of all teachers in GA in 5 years. We just can't train 'em fast enough.

      It depends totally where you're located. If you are the USA each state has different requirements for you to receive your teaching credentials. I would check with your Department of Education to find out the details. Then you look at a school that offers the program. This year is a bad year to get a job in art education. Many states are laying off teachers (except for Nevada, I believe).

      The best way to decide if you want to go into teaching is to substitute teach in a school district near you. That should tell you a thing or two.
