Re: Subs in TexasHi,

I'm new to this & have been reading for a couple of days. I'm from Aust - and I was just wondering are there too many Art teachers in America and not enough jobs ? - or is it the other way around ? And do you need a teaching qualification to teach high school art ?

    In Hawaii all you needed was a HS degree. Some subs, that got long term jobs (in Special Ed no less), barely had a HS degree. Big wigs tried to say subs needed to be retired teachers or have a college degree, but because there is such a shortage of subs, they grandfathered in all current subs, some of those "not great" subs. I have had some wonderful subs that didn't have a degree, but had lots of experience that worked in their favor. If I need a sub I can request a specific one, that is good. But if I can't get who I want I have to do a "babysitting assignment". It's a problem everywhere I guess.
    Aloha Pam

          I have a few questions for the Texans in this group. In order to sub in Texas, do you have to have a teaching certificate, or is it okay to just have a bachelor's degree? What is sub pay? How do you get on the list to sub? Thanks in advance to anyone who might have this information. It's really for my brother-in-law, who lives near Dallas. We're in Memphis, where people are still digging out from the terrible storm last Tuesday.
