Psychology Questions

QI'm considering a career in education, but where can I find more information?

I will graduate from the College of William and Mary in May 2009 and would love to be selected for Teach For America as presursor for a future career in education. However, I'm not sure what I would be most interested in teaching.

My title is a B.of Sciences Psychology with a concentration Chem, but I would like to learn more about the teaching of the curriculum in schools. You might want to teach science in high school , but middle school science . Moreover , primary education is harder / easier / more rewarding ?

Does anyone have advice for me , or can anyone direct me to a site that can answer these questions ?

Thank you !
