IMO the only way to make yourself more marketable is to add endorsements to your license- like sped, EL, middle school grade levels, etc. The thing is, you need to be willing to teach in those areas. If your heart is set on being an elementary classroom teacher, I wouldn't do the MA now. Having more classes that don't lead to another type of position isn't going to make you more marketable. In fact, it might hold you back because many places are hesitant to pay for a teacher who has a MA degree but no experience.

I would also consider if you're willing to relocate- even if it's just for a year or two to get some real classroom experience on your resume, and then you would probably have better luck applying in your home state.
