How do I become a high school teacher in New York? A?

I recently graduated from my university with a BA in English. Was hell bent on going to law school, but recently had a change of heart. I was wondering how I would become a high school English teacher in New York. I've done a bit of research and am still slightly confused. I'm under the impression that I'll need to go back to school for at least a year in order to obtain my initial certification/a masters in English education (secondary). From there I believe that I then take the teacher certification exam, do a few required workshops, and then I can start teaching! But lol if I'm wrong please correct me, any help is appreciated.

Update:

Additionally do any of these graduate programs offer scholarships?I think that my GPA and extracurriculars, could make me a strong candidate for an academic scholarship, however I wasn't sure if this was a thing they did in teacher certification programs.
