  1. The colleges are the ones that want college teaching experience. I wasn't looking to teach at a k-12 level but if thats what is need to get a job at a college I would be willing to do it.

  5. I am going to graduate with a BFA from BYU-Idaho at the end of this year. My primary goal is to teach at a university level. I know that I need to get my MFA in order to do this. Before that I would like to earn some money and gain some more experience in the field of ceramics and sculpting. My questions are these: What are good schools to attend to acquire an MFA?
