Submission + - Teaching computer science in public schools?

Rinisari writes: "I'm a senior computer science major at a small private school in Pennsylvania. I'd eventually like to teach high school computer science, but I'm unsure how to get there. I know grad school—or at least a secondary education certification program—is probably in my future, but I'd love to hear how other computer science teachers got into their position. I'm aware of the Business, Computer, and Information Technology secondary education certification in Pa., but I fear that certification would put me in a position to be teaching less-desirable classes like keyboarding or accounting. How did you get to be a computer science teacher?"

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
