So I'm going to be eligible to teach high school students sooner rather than later, and I have a few questions on how to round out my undergrad to go into the job market with the best chances of getting to teach the classes I want. Bear in mind I'm not limited to one city or state so I already have an advantage in that I'm willing to move around and many states will take my certification. Here's the list: 1. What are the prospects for the kind of classes I'll be teaching since my BS will be in Physics and I want to teach the AP classes wherever I can? 2. Will a MS in my field REALLY hinder my chances to be hired by a high school because of how they'll have to pay me more money? It seems like this is more BS than I've been led to believe. 3. If you have experience, what has your physics classroom been like, and what has helped you most as a teacher? 4. Is the fine line between respect and spite easier to walk in a physics classroom as opposed to an algebra 1 class? 5. Is it realistic to want to go to grad school and teach full time at the same time? 6. Do you like teaching, and why? Thanks for any insight.
