Your credentials listed are items that any educational institution would want within their organization. Being a faculty member at a college along with the various degrees are what can help in achieving either a teaching or administrative position.

The issue that might come up is age as although equal opportunity is something that has to be considered, education will often look at younger faculty members just out of college. Such is the fact in any career.

I still feel that locating work in any educational field is still possible at your age as you can bring a wealth of knowledge to the campus. I know of a number of professors and administrators in my alma mater who are at your age or close to it so the opportunity within a college atmosphere I feel is better than at a high school where they might be looking for someone younger and just graduated from college.
