In order to become a teacher you will need to achieve at least a bachelor's degree, although some states also require you to have a master's degree. The classes you need to take on these courses depend largely on what subjects you are looking to teach. For example an art teacher will have to take a post-graduate art education degree. An English teacher will have to earn a master's degree through an accredited teacher education programme, as well as completing a teaching certification programme.
Anyone wishing to become a teacher should research the different careers that are available to them by talking to teachers and volunteering to help in a classroom. You should also decide what sort of age group you would like to teach and then do a little research around what your state requires for teachers of different age groups, as far as qualification is concerned. This is reasonably simple to find out and there are some useful websites that provide this information. Alternatively speak to an existing teacher to find out what route they took. You will then need to complete your bachelor's degree or master's degree as well as an accredited teacher education programme.
Finally, you will need to pass either a state teacher examination or the now often-used Praxis exam to become a certified teacher. The Praxis exam is used in 45 states and is also known as the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST). The test is quite basic and tests your reading, writing and mathematical skills. Most states require that you complete this test before being allowed onto a teacher-training programme. The test can now be taken using a computer or in paper form. The majority of the test is multiple choice, although there is one essay question in the writing section. Studying to become a teacher will take a minimum of 4 years.

You need to find out what subjects, and grade levels you want to teach first.

Check with academic advisors at a University's Education Dept.

They will be able to give you all of the info you need about
degree plans, teacher certification requirements, and testing
requirements.

You can even search this on the Web.

Pick a school like Michigan State, Forida State, Texas Tech, etc.

Well! It depends that in which field you want to teach. If you want to be a teacher get the whole grip in your particular selected field and go for specialization and then do B.ED that is the required degree and preferable for the selection of teacher. Moreover, the selection criteria for being a teacher vary from institute to institute. So Good luck for your career!

I believe you need at least your Bachelor of Education and Bachelor of Arts. These are the basic stuff teachers need to know. There are definately other courses you can take to further your chances of being hired at schools.
