I just turned 30 and being sick of the corpoate life I've decided to pursue my long lost true goal of becoming a teacher (even with the 30% pay cut) I've found the teachinla website to be confusing. Here are my questions:

When I attended UCSB ten years ago I was not the most serious student and also worked every night until 3 a.m. The result: A 2.3 gpa. The credential programs and emergency credential programs I'm looking into require a minimum of a 2.7. Did I damn myself for eternity? Or is it possible to still get hired?

As for letters of recommendation, most of my professors have retired or would never even remember me. Are these really crucial or are they mainly for recent graduates?

Thank you very much in advance.
