I have a BA in Business but want to do something in education. Michigan is a tough state to get a teaching job in right now, but things may be different in 2 or so years when I am done with my degree. I am open to special ed, counseling, etc. Can anyone recommend a direction?

Special ed will definitely give you an advantage over the many other teachers who do not have it.
