Re: history teacher... any suggestions?
I had a friend who had a teaching degree from Dayton and wanted to be a history teacher. I don't know if history was his only option or what. But he graduated in 06 and just landed a full time teaching job last year. The problem with being a high school history teacher is many of the schools football coaches teach some sort of history.
If you were looking at becoming a grade school history/social studies teacher I wouldn't look to major in history. In reality you could teach yourself the entire subject matter in the matter of a few days.
