I've been reading recently that there is a new branch of physics offered in graduate school with an emphasis on physics education, and is something I am considering doing. I'm also working on getting my teaching license to teach high school. But the thing is that I really want to get a Ph.D., and I heard that if I get a Ph.D. no high school will higher me as a teacher. Has anyone else gotten a Ph.D. and been able to find a way to teach high school? Is there a way where I can teach both high school and get a Ph.D. in physics?
