That's good. You have plenty of time, then. A few tips for you:
1. Time is of the essence. The sooner you start the certification process the better.
2. I don't know which state you're in but mine forced me to get a substitute teaching license before I could get a "real" teaching license. This is a good thing to do either way. Substitute teaching gives you some decent experience, something to put on your resume, and even some small income.
3. Know where you're going once you graduate. Some states definitely treat teachers better than others when it comes to salary, pension, union rights, vacation days ...
4. Don't half-ass your grades. It's easy to fall below 3.0 if you get even two or three C-classes in a row. And this is one of those majors that kick you out if your GPA falls below a certain mark. (Granted it's not med school or anything, but keep an eye on it.)
5. Since you're learning a foreign language, consider taking a job teaching abroad, once you're qualified. See the world, experience some new cultures......again, a great thing for your resume, but it'll also be an adventure in itself.
6. Since you're going for a liberal arts degree (language arts instead of something in STEM), try to get into an MFA program! It's definitely worth it if you can get yourself a "free ride," though don't accept if you have to pay tuition. It's a ripoff unless it's free.
Anything else I could tell you is a platitude you've heard fifty times already at your orientations and workshops: get good grades, work hard, don't let any gaps show up in your resume (do volunteer work if you have to), get connected, try to have fun while doing it.
