Teaching requirements have dropped a lot in most areas (due mainly to shortages), so go for a bachelors in journalism or education!! To be quite honest with you, I really don't think that further schooling or a top university is required :)

If you want to teach journalism, it's best to get either an undergraduate degree in journalism from a top university (NorthWestern, USC, NYU, UNC CH, WashU, UofFlorida)

or to wait until graduate school and attend a school like Columbia University (the Pulitzer Prize is awarded each year from the Columbia School of Journalism). Research these schools and learn about what their requirements are for applying to a Journalism major. Good luck.
