Master's in this economy?

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone has any advice or experience they would like to give or share...I have a Master's in Education, however I never completed student teaching...although I have been teaching for 20 years, I still need to do student teaching to get a certificate (I've done all the coursework), however, people here in Utah keep telling me that I won't even be considered for being hired on a provisional, alternative route to licensure because of my Master's degree...thus I've considered leaving it off my resume...in addition, the fact that I never completed student teaching (because of financial reasons), may raise red flags. So I'm wondering if my chances for employment in this economy will be better if I leave my Master's degree and any mention of being in a teacher education off my resume. Thanks for your input!
