Hi everyone! I recently got hired for my 1st year teaching high school. I will be doing an alt certification route, so this is my literal first time in a traditional classroom. My degrees are in Wildlife Management and Neurobio/Physio. This principal got my resume from another district (I didn't even apply to his). He initially stated he had 2 positions open, Chem/Earth Science and Bio/A&P and asked which I preferred. I told him Bio. Again at the interview, he said both were open and again asked which I wanted to do; I repeated that I wanted Bio and was not comfortable teaching the other subjects. He called to offer me the job, but then told me he had either Chem, or Earth Science with 2 periods of Environmental Science (integrated with special ed kids on IEPs). He hemmed and hawed when I asked him about the original Bio position, said he'd check into it. He is now trying to convince me that I don't want to teach Bio because it's freshmen, that it's ok to only have cursory knowledge of Chem, the students won't know enough to ask any questions I can't answer, etc. He insists the Earth Science is the same as my Wildlife degree (it is NOT), and that the integrated classroom is better since there will be another teacher... despite the ~20 students with IEPs and special needs... I feel like a 1st year teacher does not need that. I told him I didn't feel it was in mine or the students best interests to make me teach a subject I personally struggled with in college (Chem) or that I knew next to nothing about (Earth Science). Then he told me he *could try* to shuffle around for Bio/A&P, but insisted I think about it more. Basically I feel he kind of "bait and switched" me. I would never have interviewed had he not said he had Bio open. Now I feel like he's trying to pressure me and if I hold my ground, we will be off on the very wrong foot. Advice?
