I'm currently a Junior CS Major at UPJ in Johnstown PA.

My question is, I know schools are really getting into the computer age with Full-time computer teachers.

What exactly would the certs be? Your teaching Certification and a CS Degree?

An actual Secondary Ed Computer Teacher curriculum?

That depends on the school district, but in Canada, you must have a BEd. to be a teacher in secondary schools. To be Comp. Sci. teacher, you would need to take math and CS as your 'teachables' during your BA (which you take before you do your BEd.)

At the Post-Secondary College level you need to have a degree or diploma in the field, plus at least 3 years of field experience. 5 years without education. To be a Professor or higher designation you generally do need graduate level degree, and/or a lot of industry experience.

University requirements change, depending on what you are taking. Graduate students can be Associate Professors...but it depends entirely on the University itself, plus whatever sub-College/School the teacher will be teaching in. Much of what happens at University is research, with teaching actually only being about 20% of a Professors time.

In the end as long as you have relevant experience, education, and understanding that teaching is very much different from being a student, it's probably one of the best ways to learn. What you thought you knew as a student, or even working in the field, is usually much different once you get up and teach.
