Re: history teacher... any suggestions?
No, you are absolutely more marketable than a "history" teacher. I have a SS degree, and can teach history, sociology, geography, and political science. I would highly recommend you also get some kind of certificate in special education. Like someone said, we are a dime a dozen. Anything you can do to get your foot in the door is a plus. I'd at least see how many more classes it would take to get a special ed. certificate, it will go a long way towards your initial employment. And later on, you can probably transfer into a strictly history type job. With the social studies certificate, you'll probably end up with at least a history minor.
