Currently my major is in elementary Education (k-6). I have been doing some volunteering in K, and also in a 5/6 grade classroom. I have always thought that I would want to teach the younger grades, maybe 1st or second... But I'm thinking that isn't the correct path. I find that I love the maturity of the 5/6 graders, and have thought a lot about changing my major to secondary education (7-12). I guess my questions for all you secondary educators are, What made you choose secondary over elementary? What are the advantages and disadvantages of teaching secondary? I would probably major in English (I know... saturated job market) but is it hard to get certified in more than one content area? Any other helpful information would be greatly appreciated!
