So this is my first year applying for SS positions and I'm wondering how best to approach the situation. My "home base" certification is k-12 music, but I have an SS endorsement pending for 5-8. When I write my cover letters, should I address my "main" area as well? Do I pretend that I'm not also certified in something completely different? Normally I'd ignore it, but I'm concerned that the type of qualifications I have will cause confusion if I don't address it. My degree is a BMe (my diploma says education, but it's a BM instead of a BA/BS) and I wasn't a history minor. I have more than enough content credits for an endorsement though. Also possibly relevant is that I've been tutoring everything but music in my post-grad ed. career. Do I try to spin my other content area into an asset, or would it look better to address only SS? I know it'll come up in interviews and I'm ready for that; I'm just not sure what to do about the cover letter.
