I was wondering if there was any high school teachers here. Have any of you guys gone right into teaching at a public high school after graduating. Ive spoken to a couple different people. One of them being an ex-high school teacher (now university instructor) and he told me that with my degree its not hard to get a teaching job even without a teaching certification. He said that high schools will allow me to start teaching and get my certification while being employed by the school. The second person being an administrator for one of the local school districts basically echoed what he said. Is this common? I plan on talking to advisors at the university but I was hoping to get more first hand experience from people that have taken a similar route.
