What is the full process to becoming a teacher?

Hi! I'm aiming to go to University of Washington to become a middle
school English teacher and teach in Seattle. I was wondering if
someone could tell me the full process of how to become a teacher?
Like all the credits, classes, and all the things I need to know.
And can you tell me about what I should do in high school for it too?
What classes, extracurricular classes? How do I do a good job so I can
get in University of Washington. Also could you tell me the salaries
in Seattle for the job, and the pro's and con's of elementary and
middle school teaching? Could you also tell me some good colleges
that are good for the job? Basically, help me with everything from
high school to after college please! It would be great if you were
from Seattle because that would help me so much as I'm going to go
there anyway, definitely after college for life with my friend, or
even before so I can attend University of Washington, of course if I
get accepted. I know it's a lot to ask, but please! I really am set
on this job so I want to know everything that will help me achieve a
good job with fun and a good salary to help me with my life. Thanks~
