Girl isn't done.

I think I'm going to teach high school math as opposed to English. Kinda screws me up in that some of my pre-reqs are completely useless, and I won't be able to attend Nevada State College anymore. Unlv is double the price. Grr. It has to be done. I'm not sure graduation by 30 is possible.

Why the switch? Both are in demand & since you want to teach you won't have to get a master's for English. Or is it ESL that's got you?

Also... could you double major? Or what about finish up to teach English then go for Math while you have a teaching job?

Actually English teachers aren't actually in demand around here. They're off the list. I actually know some english teachers who can't find a job around here. But it's not actually about that. I just don't feel as if I am all that special when it comes to writing anymore. And I don't want to be one of those, "Those who cannot do; teach" people. And with the bullshit that is happening in education, I think English is the last subject anyone wants to be involved in. I feel as with my talents, math or science would just all around be a better fit.

Nevada State College does actually offer a secondary education with an emphasis on mathematics degree, but with how small the college is... It'll take me at least four years to graduate I think. They just won't offer the courses when I'm ready for them... Now the way UNLV does it... You either get a bachelors of science in education or a bachelors of arts in education. And then you can pick a first and second teaching area... So I would do a B.S. In secondary education with a primary of mathetics and a secondary of physical science. I think I need to actually talk to someone to see how exactly far I'm set back. So we'll see.. Also with UNLV, I could bust my ass with summer and maybe get a excessive credit waiver if I attend school full time.
