Suzette asked for advice regarding a degree and certification in English. Jack Kronser (HR director in Colorado) writes that “from a school district perspective, we find a good supply of English teachers, but we are always looking for excellent teachers in all fields. I would suggest that you have as much content background as possible, as No Child Left Behind has made that a mandate. So, definitely the major in English. Also a minor in a foreign language, Special Education, English as a Second Language, Reading, etc. will make your job search more successful.”
