I agree, ceramics and jewelry are good to know. I was first hired because I
had one more ceramics course than all the other applicants, and they needed
a ceramics teacher. I also had extra art history. Photography and
technology courses are also extremely useful.

The degree in itself might not be worth much (debatable) but it forces you
to take those extra classes. I would recommened taking extra ceramics and
metals courses--those skills come in handy in an art room. I feel I skimped
on those, and I'm having to learn while I'm student teaching.
