The teacher's credential program is a joke: just put in your time and you'll get an 'A' in the class. I felt completely unprepared for the classroom. 99% of the classes were about theory: "The history of elementary education". We had one professor who spent the whole class period reading out of the newspaper and asking us what we thought about the article. Another professor would make us create grandiose lesson plans that could never be recreated in a typical classroom. As for helpful? Most of the elementary professors were women who were prejudiced against male teachers. "Maybe you should find another career" and "men aren't really nurturers, you know" were the typical comments professors would tell me.
