I'm wondering if anyone has any experience going from a specialist or single subject teacher to a general classroom teacher. I've been teaching a single subject for 6 years. 3 years in grades 6 - 8 and 3 years in grades 1 - 6. I could obtain an endorsement to be a classroom teacher with just a few extra classes/tests and I'm interested in it because it seems that, in theory, I would have more flexibility in jobs. I would rather teach in a place that I love than teach my preferred subject. However, it doesn't give me flexibility if no one would actually be willing to hire me. I think I would be desirable in that I have management down, obviously, and lots of successful experience teaching children, but I would have absolutely no experience teaching math or ELA specifically. Even new teachers (except TFA) have done student teaching in those subjects. Has anyone gone this route? Has anyone had the experience of interviewing/hiring candidates with this kind of application?
