Hello all, I just earned my MS credential in California. The job market is pretty tight and I would like to expand my credentials to include a SS in English. I got my BA in English but not with the specifically approved classes for the SS credential, so I will need to take the CSET for English. I've read the CTC website about adding a supplementary authorization and a subject matter authorization. It's confusing. It seems to me that if I pass the CSET and take the required education course, I would still only be able to teach English subject matter for grades 9 and under, even if the students are older. I would like to be able to teach up to grade 12 subject matter. Can someone clarify the difference between supplementary authorization and subject matter authorization? My credential literally reads authorized subject(s): Introductory English, General Subjects (Examination) Subject matter authorizations: General subjects (Examination) Supplementary Authorization(s): Introductory English Does this supplementary authorization mean I can teach English to middle school? I thought to teach middle school with a MS credential you had to teach more than one subject. Also, anyone in California who went from MS to SS, how did you do it? I know I am asking a lot...it's just that the more I read the CTC website, the more confused I got. Thanks for your time!
