If you haven't already worked in a local school district, I would recommend volunteering. It not only helps you get your foot in the door of a potential future job, it will give you a real life experience and a chance to apply what you know. Going the education route is not for everyone, so take the time to get to know your local district, your state legislature, and the potential communities that you would be working for. At the same time, it might not be a bad idea to look into volunteer opportunities at your local hospital. Often times, both will have several options for volunteers. It's an extremely rewarding opportunity, I myself have been a volunteer at both a local elementary school and a hospital, and at the end of the day it will help make your decision easier.
You can always talk to your college's staff. The professors are on campus in their offices, and more often then not they love to help and offer advice. Even those who may not be your professors or are in different programs of study.
All the best!
