Great teachers come from every school, just like incompetent teachers come from every school. The best thing you can do to become a teacher is GET OUT AND TEACH!!! volunteer around town or work for cheap while you're in school. giving private lessons are not good enough, unless that's what you want to teach. helping a local teacher will likely give you (close to) classroom experience, and the teacher you're helping with give you valuable advice.
no school will "give" you an education. you must go and get it.
