I have an M.S. degree in Geography, what are some of the best online Masters in Education programs I can take to enable me transition into the teaching profession?

I am considering a career change to teaching. My M.S. degree in Geography got me into a survey occupation that I didn’t quite enjoy. I decided to quit the job entirely since I had no passion for it.

I am not familiar with accredited online universities that offer education programs. I need a list of masters degrees with short explanations. Does anyone have information on universities providing online masters degree in education?
