Why don't you start by just working on your general Ed classes… It really sounds like you're not dedicated to one program or the other, and there's a fairly good chance that you'll change your mind later on. Also know that there is a huge difference between a teaching degree and a counselor degree, in which you will probably need a masters to gain competitive employment. For any degree you choose, there will be about two years of just general Ed classes, have a least… Why not work on those and spend some time volunteering to see if it's what you really want? No one on this list could, or should, tell you what to do… It has to be your decision. Trying talking to a visor at your local college, and get their views. Find out what the education and certifications are required for your state for the jobs you wish to pursue. That will give you a much better idea of classes in the direction you want to go.
