It's wonderful that you get this opportunity, but what about the
students. According to NCLB,
every teacher is to be highly qualified in the subjects they teach.
When I was assigned to
teach two periods of reading, several years ago, I wrote to our
states commissioner of
education. The s**t hit the fan but I was returned to a full schedule
of teaching art. It
took two years to get it done but I was successful. I also did a
great job teaching reading -
which I was neither certified nor qualified to do. But, the important
thing was that I got to
teach a full day of the subjects I was highly qualified for. Think
about your students -
should they not have the best.
