Obama's support for more STEM teachers

I was so excited to hear about Obama's giving money to hire more STEM teachers. I'm thinking of getting certified in Physics or Math, and was hopeful that this might mean there might be some money to help me pay for this. ($12,000 is a lot of money to shell out to switch careers to something where I will take a pay cut!)

Well, the good news is that there is money, but none of it seems to be available to me. Support is going to existing programs - one is only in the states of Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, and the other one is only for undergraduates.

It's just so frustrating to hear everyone saying how desperate they are for Math and Science teachers, but there doesn't seem to be much help to become one. At least I did find that IBM has $5000 scholarships for people in graduate or certification programs in Math and Science. When I go talk to the local University again, I will be sure to ask them about scholarships there too.
