Go back to school, and get a multiplesubjects attachment to your credential.
All of us, Single Subject Art Credentials, are losing our jobs. Even though
I have tenure, 15 years of teaching experience, because they "cut" the art
program (same with music/band instructor), I have no protection to be kept
on at the district. If I had another credential, or a multiple subject
credential, they could "put me in another position", for at least 2-3 hours
of the day (history, language arts, etc.) and then the 0ther 4 hours of the
day I would teach my art classes. But, my single subject credential doesn't
allow me to teach anything else.
Go back to school, quick, and get another credential, just in case your art
position doesn't work out.
