So i've decided that this science degree will suit me: Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies 4th Grade – 8th Grade Science Teacher Certification and ESL Supplemental Teacher Certification I am fluent in Arabic and plan to minor in it but i don't see how that can come in handy. Anyways it seems the only job i'll probably get(hopefully) is a middle school science teacher. How much did you get paid when you were first hired. I live in TX but i'm interested in all states. also high school teachers get paid more?
