As I described on another post, I'm a college senior and would like to become a secondary school Social Studies or Language Arts teacher. Unfortunately I did not major in education so I am not certified. I plan to seek alternate certification but hear it's pretty hard to get a job in SS or LA. So I'm thinking that I might get certified in ESL just so I can get my foot in the door, and then switch to SS or LA as soon as I am able. Is this a good idea? Will it be hard for me to switch? Will it up my chances considerably? thanks.
