Have any of you had to teach a subject you were not certified to teach? Do you know of a teacher that this happened to? What are your thoughts on this type of scheduling? I remember one of my teachers telling me he/she had to teach italian. The bad thing was he/she did not even speak or write the language. My first thoughts are why would administrators do this? Why not just cut the language because they always had spanish anyway. I had a math teacher tell the class about another math teacher who is not certified to teach math. The person apparently is a certified Art Teacher. Now maybe you could get away with a certified science teacher doing that. I think Art is a long jump out of the content area. Plus this teacher happens to teach an AP math course as well. I think one of the certified math teachers with a masters in pure math should teach AP.
