Has anyone successfully added a new subject area to a license while maintaining a full-time teaching position? I'm trying to figure out if this is at all possible for me. I'm licensed in secondary English ed in Indiana. I have a Spanish minor and have thought about incorporating this, but don't know if I can squeeze it in while still teaching English full-time. I don't mind taking a class or two each semester until it's finished, but the student teaching is the part that I always get stuck on. Do all programs require you to student teach in your subject area? Are there options for working teachers? I know it *can* be done in a pinch...For ex., I had a friend who student taught for an additional subject area in her own classroom, but this was because her school hired her on an emergency license for a class she was not (at that time) licensed to teach. My school doesn't even currently offer Spanish classes. If they did start offering said classes, could I teach one or two of them (if my school hired me, obviously) and have this constitute? Could summer school be an option? These are high school classes that are taught in my area for students who failed during the year, so the curriculum and hours are the same as a semester-long class packed into 6 weeks. For me, student teaching was far more valuable in learning classroom management and the ins and outs of being a teacher - not so much concentration on the subject area, which has always been a very strong area for me. I don't feel teaching middle school Spanish would be a far cry from English as long as I had a strong knowledge of the subject matter. Just trying to sort this all out...TIA.
